Women’s Golf to Host Fourth EAT A PEACH Collegiate
MACON, Ga. – The Mercer women's golf team looks to defend its title at the EAT A PEACH Collegiate this weekend, scheduled for two rounds of play on Sunday and Monday. The action tees off at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday at Oak View Golf Course in Macon.

Mercer's Lacey Fears took individual medalist honors, besting Shorter's Greta Lange in a playoff hole to finish atop the leaderboard.
This year, Mercer welcomes Armstrong Atlantic, Berry College, Coastal Georgia, Gordon College, Oglethorpe University, Piedmont College, Reinhardt University, SCAD Atlanta, Shorter and Truett-McConnell to the event.
Mary Alice Murphy, Aurelie Wiriath, Kimmy Graff, Sarah Louie Brown and Fears comprise Mercer's lineup for the competition. Kaitlin Marrin, Keri Lynn Carson, Alicia Poole and Jessica Arthur are scheduled to compete as individuals.
Sunday and Monday each feature 18 holes of competition with the awards presentation following competition of play on Monday.
