A Message from the Coach I hope you enjoy looking through our 2009-10 James Madison University women’s golf team recruiting guide. It is with great pleasure that I have the opportunity to be the head women’s golf coach at such an outstanding and progressive university. Our team has completed its second season with the addition of golf scholarships. Our young players have assisted the team to a very successful beginning of what I know, will be a terrific program. The present team members are looking forward to the 2009-2010 season. I am also excited to be hosting our second James Madison University college golf invitational at Eagle Landing Golf Club in Jacksonville, Fla. Every year my goals are to play a top Division I schedule, win our conference championship and participate in the NCAA Championship. I am confident that our program will be ranked alongside the Schedule top college golf programs in the very near future. September The student-athlete at James Madison University is offered a highly 12-13 at Mary Fossum Invitational competitive academic program, an exciting living environment and a 18-20 at Lady Paladin Invitational support staff that will help our athletes be successful both on and off 27-29 at UNCG Starmount Invitational the course. Our strength and conditioning coaches hold mandatory October workouts that are geared toward golf-related performance.
