WGOLF team to make history on Thursday
WATERLOO, Ont. (September 19, 2013) - The Wilfrid Laurier University golf team will make program history on Thursday as head coach Jim Zwolak will field a women's team entry at the Western Invitational in London, Ont.

Team members Alexandra Medeiros of Burlington, Ont., Kourtney Riley of Kitchener, Ont., and Skylar Turkiewicz of Brantford, Ont., will make up the first Laurier women's team to compete at an OUA event.

The team is being supported by funding generated from Athletics and Recreation's annual Outstanding Women of Laurier event which is held each March to honour female student-athletes and raise funds for women's athletic initiatives at Laurier.

"This is a great moment for the department and something that Jim [Zwolak] has been pushing for since taking over as head coach," commented PETER BAXTER, the director of Athletics and Recreation. "This has been made possible not only by his hard work but also through the efforts of our OWL committee and the work they put in each year."

Previously, the Hawks have had female golfers compete at OUA events but never enough to form a team entry into a competition.
