KU women’s basketball hits the links
LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas women’s basketball hit the links for the Brandon Schneider Golf Tournament at Eagle Bend Golf Course on Saturday morning, benefiting the program and the Lawrence Memorial Hospital Breast Center.
“I can’t say thank you enough for (everyone) coming out and supporting not only our program, but also LMH,” head coach Brandon Schneider said.
Participants enjoyed the cool 68-degree weather to begin the day, but temperatures rose throughout the tournament. The Jayhawks helped keep supporters hydrated and cool, delivering drinks and interacting with participants throughout the day.
The Kansas student-athletes even got the chance to practice their short game prior to the start of the event, seeing who could putt the ball into the hole first.
Since its start in 2015, both participants and players have looked forward to the annual event.
“We all look forward to this event every year because we love getting to interact with our supporters,” senior guard Kylee Kopatich said.
In addition to a round of golf, the event also included an awards reception, a live and silent auction and a lunch.
Prizes were given for best score (four-woman team, four-man team and four-person mixed team), longest drive (men and women), closest to the pin (men and women) and hole-in-one.
The Jayhawks tipoff the 2018-19 season on Friday, September 28 at Late Night in the Phog inside Allen Fieldhouse.
