After claiming third place at the Greenville Regional Preview, the Kansas State women’s golf team will look to stay hot and keep its success rolling at the Maryb S. Kauth Invitational.

At Greenville, the team was one shot away from tying for second in the 16-team field. Junior Connie Jaffrey won the individual tournament with a 3-over 219.

“Connie played exceptionally well on a very difficult course,” head coach Kristi Knight said to K-State Sports. “I am very proud of her and this entire team. A top-three finish in this field is great.”

The Maryb S. Kauth Invitational will take place at the Briggs Ranch Golf Club. The course is a 6,450-yard par-72. The tournament will tee off at 11 a.m. Sunday and conclude after the 8:45 a.m. shotgun start on Tuesday.

Teams participating in the event are as follows: Arkansas, Auburn, Houston, K-State, LSU, Mississippi State, Old Dominion, SMU, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas State, Tulane and the host-team UTSA.

After this, the Wildcats will partake in the Trinity Forest Invitational in Dallas, Texas, Nov. 7-8, which will be the last meet of the fall season for the Cats.
