Despite struggling over the weekend, the Mean Green women’s golf team is in good spirits heading into the Sun Belt Conference tournament next week, head coach Jeff Mitchell said.

The Mean Green will contest the conference title at the Fighting Joe golf course in Muscle Shoals, Ala., from Monday to Wednesday.

“I think it would take a lot to think that we can win the tournament,” Mitchell said. “But certainly that’s still our goal.”

Mitchell said juniors Chaslyn Chrismer and Taylor Kilponen, sophomore McKenzie Ralston and freshman Georgina Mundy have all played their best golf this spring.

“If we can figure out a way to get everybody playing that way at the same time, we can definitely put ourselves in position to win,” Mitchell said.

Chrismer said the other teams will not stand a chance against the Mean Green if the team can play as well together as they have individually this spring.

“I have really high expectations for us as a team,” Chrismer said. “We haven’t exactly performed like we should have this year, but I feel like we can perform well next week.”

The Mean Green needs a victory in the conference tournament to make it to the regional round of the NCAA tournament.

“We’ve had a rough couple of tournaments, and I think it’s time for us to get our confidence back,” Ralston said. “This is the perfect opportunity.”

The weather forecast is currently showing favorable conditions – a welcome change to the inclement weather the team has encountered this semester.

“It feels like all spring we’ve played in tournaments with awful weather,” Ralston said. “I think the weather will give us a good opportunity to shoot low scores.”

Ralston said the team played pretty well the two times it played in decent weather this season in Utah and Arizona.

The number one priority when playing the Fighting Joe golf course is hitting the fairway and deciding which side of the fairway to aim for and how hard to hit the ball, Mitchell said.

Mitchell described the course as “strategy-based” and said driving well and getting the ball up and down were of the utmost importance.

“If we do both of those well, I think we will do just fine,” he said.
