    Weekly Release

    FRESNO, Calif. -- In the onset of its tenth season as an athletic program, the Fresno State women's golf program will tee off its first tournament of the fall season on Sept. 9-10 in Fort Collins, Colo.

    In their first season led by new head coach Emily Milberger, the Bulldogs seek to further establish a level of excellence and tradition created in the years before.

    "There has been a lot of excitement and positive energy all week as we've been practicing and preparing and the team is ready to start this season off with a strong showing," Milberger said.

    The 'Dogs commence their tenth year at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic in Fort Collins, Colo.

    The Bulldog's first tournament of the fall season will be held on the 6,352-yard, par-72 Ptarmigan Country Club.

    "I am really looking forward to this upcoming weekend at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic," Milberger said. "We have a lot of experience on this course from our veteran players and I think that is going to be a big advantage for our team."

    The Bulldog lineup includes Madchen Ly, Hannah Sodersten, Hillary Billingsley, Taylor Wilkinson and freshman Sandra 'Sandy' Livas.

    The Bulldogs enter the Ptarmigan Ram Classic as tournament veterans with historical memories made in Fort Collins, Colo. In their first-ever competitive tournament, the Bulldogs competed in the 2004 Ptarmigan Ram Classic where Bulldog Laura Luethke took home the individual title with a 213 (68-74-71) finish.

     

     

    In nine out of ten years, the Bulldogs opened their fall season at the Ptarmigan Ram Classic.

    The annual two-day tournament will begin on Monday, Sept. 9 at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start and will continue on Tuesday, Sept. 10 with tee times. Follow living scoring of the Ptarmigan Ram Classic on www.golfstat.com and check www.gobulldogs.com for the recap.
