EAU CLAIRE - The UW-Eau Claire women's golf team will open the 2004 season hosting 12 teams at the UW-Eau Claire Invite Saturday and Sunday at Mill Run and Wild Ridge Golf Courses.
The Blugolds return five of their top six golfers from last year's team and will be led by the return of Maggie Loney (Jr.-River Falls). Loney shot the lowest average round in the fall and spring seasons with an average round under 82.
