The tournament will consist of 36 holes on Sunday followed by 18 holes on Monday with a shotgun start at 8:30 a.m. (MT) each day.
 
Six members of the K-State squad will be competing in the tournament with freshman Connie Jaffrey, sophomore Madison Talley, seniors Olivia Eliasson and Carly Ragains, and sophomore Katherine Gravel-Coursol comprising the scoring lineup. Junior Scotland Preston will participate as an individual.
 
"The team is looking forward to returning to action," head coach Kristi Knight said. "This is a great event to start out spring season. It is a good course and has a strong field."
