LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Kansas women’s golf team will travel to John Island S.C., as the Jayhawks will partake in the Briar’s Creek Invitational Monday, March 24 and Tuesday, March 25, at Golf Club at Briar’s Creek.

Faii is entering the tournament after coming off her second top-ten finish of the season as she finished in a tie for eighth after carding a 225 (+9), at the Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate. Fhong will be looking to help the Jayhawks to another strong finish as she recorded her fifth top-20 finish at the Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate.
