HANOVER, Ind. – The Hanover women's golf program has released the fall portion of its schedule for the upcoming 2018-19 season.
The Panthers will be under the guidance of first year head coach Brandon Tereshko in 2018-19, as he takes over for longtime Hanover coach and supporter, Wayne Perry. Tereshko will lead the Blue and Red into six multi-round tournaments this fall, including the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, which will crown the league's automatic qualifier for the spring's NCAA Division III National Championship tournament.
Hanover will open the new campaign with the Olivet (Mich.) Labor Day Classic for the third consecutive year, which will take place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 1 and 2. The Panthers are coming off a third place finish in the season-opening meet in 2017.
The Blue and Red will then welcome a select number of institutions to the campus' surrounding area for the two-day Hanover Invitational Sept. 8 and 9. The Panthers have enjoyed success in recent years at their home event, which hosts one round in Madison Ind. (Sunrise Golf Course) and another in Seymour, Ind. (Shadowood Golf Course). The squad has won the HC Invite in three of the past four years, including last fall in the field of nine teams.
Additional tournaments hosted by non-conference opponents this fall will be in their second consecutive season on the Hanover slate. Illinois Wesleyan will host its annual fall classic Sept. 15 and 16, while Wittenberg's Pat Clouse Invitational is scheduled to take place Oct. 6 and 7.
The final two tournaments currently scheduled for the fall are the HCAC Preview and HCAC Championship, both of which will take place in Liberty Ind. at Liberty Country Club. Earlham will be the host institution for both events, as the preview is slated for Sept. 23 and 24, and the conference championship set for Oct. 13 and 14. Hanover has won four of the past five HCAC championships and are coming off a third place finish in 2017.
