The Iowa women's golf team will travel to Carbondale, Ill. March 25 and 26 to compete in the Saluki Invitational at Hickory Ridge Golf Course.

The Hawkeyes are fresh off a season-best ninth-place finish March 14 at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in Kane'ohe, O'ahu, Hawaii. Iowa shot a combined 74-over 938 (308, 312, 318), 37 strokes behind winner Texas A&M. Senior Chelsea Harris led the Hawkeyes with a 54-hole score of 11 over. She carded a team-best 3 birdies in the final round on the way to a 2-over 74 and finished tied for ninth individually. Shelby Phillips tied for 31st (19 over), Gigi DiGrazia finished in a tie for 52nd (24 over), Lauren English placed 59th (26 over), and Kristi Cardwell carded a 28-over tie for 62nd.

Head coach Megan Menzel said it's good to be competing in the Midwest again after participating in tournaments in Texas, Arizona, and Hawaii over the last four weeks.

The Hawkeyes didn't compete last week.

"It's helpful that we played three tournaments already; we were able to get a solid evaluation of our game," she said. "It's nice to hit off real grass again; it helps us fine-tune our swings and put the ball into play."
