The 28th-ranked University of South Carolina women’s golf team will challenge for the 2004 SEC Championship, April 16-18th, at the University Club in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The 54-hole, 6,300-yard tournament will begin Friday at 8:30 a.m. and will run through Sunday’s final round. The conference champion will earn an automatic invite to the 2004 NCAA Golf Regionals in May. Each team is comprised of five golfers with the best four scores counting towards the team’s total score each day.
