TOWSON, Md. (Oct. 28, 2010) - The Towson University Women's golf team hosted a clinic for the Howard County First Tee/ LPGA.USGA Girls Golf Program at Hillendale Country Club.

The goal of the day was to give the young golfers an opportunity to see hands-on, what the Tigers do at practice and to get to know the Towson players. Tiger team members included seniors Elisabeth Herzfeld, Sara Eichelberger and Emily Kwak, junior Airielle Dawson, sophomore Chelsea Harris and freshman Casey Vandyke. Coach Kate Stepanek directed the program.

The day consisted of groups of junior girls rotating to various activities. The different stations included range, chipping, putting and playing a par three. Each station had different contests including around the world, putting contests with tees placed around a hole, and hitting through a hoop on the chipping green and range. These contests were in place so the girls were able to work in a team environment by using their individual skills to accomplish their goal.

"This was a great opportunity for our team members to become involved with local golf programs," Coach Stepanek said. "My team understands how important it is to give back to the community that is so supportive of them. Developing relationships within your sport and a camaraderie among players is special.

"I'd like to thank the LPGA/USGA Girls Golf and First Tee of Howard County as well as Hillendale Country Club, for working with me to make this event possible. We look forward to continuing this every year."

The Tigers conclude the fall portion of their 2010-11 schedule November 1 and 2 at the Spider Invitational hosted by the University of Richmond at the Independence Golf Club.
