ORLANDO, Fla. ( – The UCF women’s golf team will get their 2013-14 season under way Monday through Wednesday at the “Mo” Morial, hosted by Texas A&M at the Traditions Club in Bryan, Texas.

Under second-year head coach Emily Marron, the Knights are coming off back-to-back NCAA Regional Tournament appearances. UCF is looking for even more success this season and it all gets started Monday.

UCF will have two returners in its lineup, while three newcomers will also take part for the Knights. Monifa Sealy and Robyn Doig were UCF’s top two golfers for much of last season and each will play in this tournament. Meanwhile, transfer Fanny Cnops and freshmen Ashley Holder and Kristine Odaiyar will see their first action for the Knights. Kaitlyn Price will also see action as an individual in the “Mo” Morial.

“The team played really well through qualifying and it was a true fight to make the lineup,” Marron said. “We have the most depth we've ever had and that will provide a more competitive environment on a daily basis.   Our fall schedule is very strong and will put us up against the best teams in the country. We've set some high goals for this team and with the talent we have assembled, we believe we can achieve them.”

The Par-72, 6,206-yard course at the Traditions Club will see one 18-hole round on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The field will also include East Carolina, Elon, Florida State, Kentucky, Redlands Community College, Rollins College, Texas A&M, UT-Pan American, UT-San Antonio and Virginia.

The “Mo” Morial is named after former Texas A&M women’s golf great Monica Welsh, who tragically died in an automobile accident in 1992. She was a four-year letter winner for the Aggies from 1978-82. This is the 18th “Mo” Morial.

Live scoring for the tournament will be available through Golfstat.
