    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Saluki women's golf looks to keep its current momentum going strong on Monday when they will compete in the Payne Stewart Memorial, hosted by Missouri State.

    Southern is coming off a dominant tournament win at the UMKC Fall Invitational on Oct. 1 where the Salukis posted two individuals in the top-three overall. Senior Cassie Rushing (second place) and junior Kris Grimes (third place) will look to pace SIU once again.

    Included in the tournament field are 14 Division I schools, including five Missouri Valley Conference opponents. In attendance will be: Arkansas-Little Rock, Bradley, Creighton, Drake, Drury, Missouri-Kansas City, Missouri State, North Dakota State, Northern Iowa, Oklahoma City, Oral Roberts, Redlands CC, South Dakota, South Dakota State, Valparaiso and Wichita State.

    Play begins at 8:30 a.m. both Monday and Tuesday.
