Huskies Open Highly Anticipated Fall Season At Wolverine Invitational
ANN ARBOR, Mich. – After COVID-19 wiped out the fall golf season in 2020, Husky coach Mary Lou Mulflur is anxiously anticipating a return to action as summer fades away. The longtime Washington coach leads a young Husky squad to the Wolverine Invitational in Ann Arbor, Mich., Sept. 13-14, and couldn't be more excited to kick-off the season.
"We are excited to get the fall season underway, especially since there was no fall season last year," Mulflur said. "Michigan will be a good test for us with a strong field and a well-designed Alister MacKenzie golf course."
Mulflur will roll out a new lineup at University of Michigan Golf Course that features a junior, sophomore and three Huskies making their collegiate debuts. UW is among 15 teams that will be competing in two rounds on Monday and a final round on Tuesday.
Lefty Brittany Kwon brings the most experience to the Huskies' lineup with 14 tournaments under her belt in her first two seasons at UW. Sophomore Camille Boyd teed it up in eight events for the Huskies in 2021 and was third on the team in scoring average at 76.08. After that pair in the lineup, it's all rookies for Washington.
Adithi Anand out of Redmond HS in Redmond, Wash., was on the roster this past spring in 2021, but did not make the starting lineup. She will be making her long-anticipated Huskies' debut on Monday.
Kennedy Knox out of Mt. Rainier HS had an outstanding summer, including a win at the PNGA Junior Amateur Championship. Jamie Hsieh out of Taipei will be making her first start after an outstanding amateur career overseas.
"This lineup is pretty young and at the same time, extremely talented," Mulflur said. "We can't wait."
