NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Belmont women's golf team opens its 2019-20 season this Sunday as they take on Sewanee in a dual match in Sewanee, Tennessee.
Entering the new season, the Bruins are hoping to maintain their momentum from last season. The squad finished fourth at the OVC Championship last April and overall had four top-five finishes during the 2018-19 season.
The team returns six players from last year's team. Leading the way are a pair of sophomores. Katelyn Dunstan ranked second on the team last season in scoring at 77.3 and had four top-25 finishes, including a 10th place finish at the Spring Break Shootout last March. The Little Rock, Arkansas product also broke the school's 18-hole scoring record with a 67 in that same event.
Florida native Cameron Fish ranked third last year in scoring at 77.9 and had three top-20 finishes including a season-best ninth place showing at the OVC Championship. She is one of five Bruins to place in the top-10 at the OVC Championship in program history.
Belmont has just one newcomer on this year's team. Lily Gulley is a native of Round Rock, Texas and was a three-time team MVP and All-District performer at Round Rock High School. In addition, she earned three individual wins and multiple top-10 finishes on the Legends, AJGA, and TJGT junior circuits.
This weekend's opponent is the Sewanee Tigers. The Tigers are one of the top programs in NCAA Division III. They return five players from last year's team that finished the season ranked 23rd nationally by Golfstat.
The match is set to begin at 10:00am Sunday morning at The Course at Sewanee, recently ranked as one of the top-campus courses in the nation by Golfweek.
