The women's golf team returns to action, this time at the Ron Moore Women's Intercollegiate in Denver. This is the first time the Wildcats have played at the event, and hope to continue their recent success.

Jon Wefald was a controversial figure, but this opinion piece from Erin Hildreth of the Collegian suggests he's still deserving of the honor of having a residence hall named after him.
