“I am really excited about hosting our Rocket Golf Celebration,” Hollingsworth said. “This is the first time we are doing this, and it should be a great night where we can talk with our fans and get our spring season started in a positive way.”

“We have a lot to be proud of with both of our programs and want to share this excitement with our supporters,” Broce said. “I’m looking forward to having a fun, relaxing evening for people to get to know us and our teams.”

The two programs are celebrating tremendous fall campaigns both in the classroom and on the links. The women posted a 3.41 cumulative GPA with the men notching a 3.379 cumulative GPA. On the course, the women opened the season by winning Illinois State’s Redbird Invitational, while the men closed their fall with a championship at the Georgetown Intercollegiate.
