ALLIANCE, Ohio – The Mount Union women's golf team will host the ninth annual Phipps Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, October 19 at Alliance Country Club.
Joining the Purple Raiders in the tournament are golfers from Walsh University and Malone University.
The Albert and Martha Phipps Memorial Golf Tournament is made possible through the generosity of the Phipps family. Long time residents of Stark County, the Phipps were avid golfers and wanted to provide a special opportunity for the three Stark County universities that maintain intercollegiate golf teams.
In their last event, the Purple Raiders won the OAC Preview at River Greens Golf Course in West Lafayette. Mount Union was led by sophomore Olivia DeMartino (Canfield/Canfield) who finished in third place overall with an 85 while freshman Erica Mawhorr (Zanesville/West Muskingum) carded an 87 for fourth place.
The Phipps Memorial Golf Tournament marks the last event of the fall for the Purple Raiders.
