    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Southern Illinois University women's golf program announced its 2013-14 schedule on Wednesday that features a spring and fall slate of 11 tournaments, highlighted by the annual Missouri Valley Conference Championships on April 20-22 in Springfield, Ill.

    The Salukis return four of their five top golfers from last year's team that finished in third place at the MVC Championships. The top returnee is senior Cassie Rushing, who led the team with a 77.6 stroke average in 2013 and earned All-Conference honors for the third-straight year.

    SIU will compete in four tournaments hosted by MVC schools, including its own Saluki Invitational on Mar. 29-30.

    Entering her third year as head coach, Alexis Mihelich hopes to deliver the program's first conference title since 2007.

    "It's our goal to win the MVC, and the courses we play and competition we face will prepare us for that challenge," Mihelich said. "Every tournament will test our abilities, right up until we go to the Panther Creek Country Club for the 2014 MVC Championships."
