BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Returning to the links for the first time since mid-February, No. 3 Florida Tech tees off Monday at the Armstrong Pirate Women’s Invitational in Savannah, Georgia.

The 36-hole event at the par-72 Savannah Quarters Country Club will consist of one round over each of the next two days, beginning with 8:30 a.m. shotgun starts.

The 17-team field is no joke, highlighted by four top-five programs, including No. 1 Flagler.

In addition to the Panthers, the Sunshine State Conference will be well represented with No. 2 Lynn, No. 5 Nova Southeastern, No. 14 Saint Leo and No. 16 Florida Southern also competing.

Leading the way for the Panthers are Swedes Johanna Larsson and Felicia Leftinger, who both enter Monday among the top-eight in NCAA Division II in scoring average.

Larsson hopes to continue her hot play, earning a share of the Lady Moc Classic championship her last time out on Feb. 17.

Results will be posted to FloridaTechSports.com following the completion of each round.
