Old Waverly Presents Next Challenge

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Vanderbilt women’s golf team will back be in action Monday when it competes at the The Ally at Old Waverly.

The three-day, 54-hole event will feature the Commodores, every other SEC program and Southern Mississippi out of Conference USA. The Commodores are scheduled to tee off starting at 8:30 a.m. Monday on hole No. 1.

“Once again we’re just grateful for the opportunity to compete,” Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen said. “There’s a lot of players and coaches not getting to play this fall so we don’t take this for granted.

“I’m proud of our girls for doing their part to make sure they are following protocols.”

Played in West Point, Mississippi, and hosted by Mississippi State, The Ally is played on the Old Waverly Golf Course where participants are challenged by a 7,000-yard, a par 72 layout. The event is named for former Mississippi State student-athlete Ally McDonald Ewing was an All-American during her time as a Bulldog.

Vandy is coming off a ninth-place showing at the Blessings Collegiate Invitational. Celina Sattelkau led the Commodores during that tournament with a 6-over-par to finish tied for 11th.

Sattelkau will return to the lineup this week along with Louise Yu, Morgan Baxendale, Tess Davenport and Jayna Choi.

“I’m excited about playing Old Waverly,” Allen said. “It has a lot of history with hosting big time women’s events. We’ve put in some good work since the Blessings and we’re ready to see it pay off this week.

“As long as we continue to learn and grow and get bette reach week, I’ll consider it a successful week.”
