EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) -Entering his first season at the helm of the University of Evansville men’s and women’s golf teams, head coach John Andrews has announced the 2021 spring schedules for both squads.
“I really look forward for the student-athletes on both of our teams to be able to have the opportunity to compete in the spring,” Andrews stated. “It feels like a long time since they have had the chance to play in a competitive match. We are all very excited to get back on the course.”
Evansville’s men will be the first to take the course on February 8 with a trip to Dade City, Fla. For the Earl Yestingsmeier Match Play.
