The University of Minnesota women's golf team begins postseason competition on Friday, taking part in the Big Ten Championships at the TPC River's Bend golf course in Maineville, Ohio. Competition at the par-72, 6,357-yard course will take place over three days, with tee times scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. ET on Friday and Saturday and 8:00 a.m. ET on Sunday.
Six Big Ten teams are ranked among the top 50 according to the latest Golfweek/Sagarin national rankings. Northwestern leads the way at No. 15, followed by No. 28 Ohio State, No. 32 Illinois, No. 34 Purdue, No. 37 Michigan and No. 48 Wisconsin.
Minnesota's lineup, which consists of juniors Sabrine Garrison and Heather Ciskowski, senior Emie Peronnin, and sophomores Muyu Wu and Niamh Ward, will tee off starting at 8:30 a.m. from the first hole.
The Gophers are coming off a 10th place finish at the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational last weekend. Ciskowski finished tied for 24th place, her second top-25 finish of the season. As a team, Minnesota had a season-best sixth place finish early on in the season at the Florida State Match Up, lead by top-25 finishes by Peronnin and Garrison. Garrison earned her highest finish of the season, tying for 16th last month at the Clover Cup. Peronnin finished tied for 13th, the highest finish for the Gophers this season at the Hurricane Invitational.
