WHEN LAST IN ACTION
TCU is competing for the first time since opening its season with a seventh-place finish at the Jim West Challenge in The Woodlands, Texas (Sept. 11-12).

QUOTABLE
“We are honored to play in such a prestigious event at the Golfweek Conference Challenge,” TCU head women’s golf coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said. “We love this golf course and everything Golfweek does for women’s golf. This team is ready to WIN the moment and take another leap on our journey of excellence.”

HORNED FROGS LINEUP
TCU will feature a lineup of Annika Clark, Emmy Martin, Grace Do, Brooke McDougald and Tiffany Breitenwischer. It’s the same quintet that represented the Horned Frogs at the season-opening Jim West Challenge.

HORNED FROGS NOTABLES
* Annika Clark carded a career-low 68 and tied a school record with a 54-hole score of 210 at the Jim West Challenge. Clark's 3 under par bettered her previous career-best 69 set on three occasions. The junior from Highlands, Texas, tied for 12th individually. Her 74.4 career stroke average is No. 1 in school history.

* Emmy Martin, an All-Big 12 selection last season, had a pair of below-par rounds at the Jim West Challenge. The senior from Odessa, Fla., tied for 20th with an even-par 213. It was the 12th top-20 result of her career. She set a TCU season record last year with a 72.9 stroke average, while her 13 rounds of par of better were one shy of another mark.

* Freshman Grace Do, in her first collegiate tournament, finished the Jim West Challenge at 8-over 221.

* Brooke McDougald, competing in her hometown of The Woodlands, also totaled a 221 at the Jim West Challenge. She’ll be playing in her seventh consecutive tournament.

* Dating back to last season, Tiffany Breitenwischer will be in her fifth straight event for the Horned Frogs.
