Lincoln College women's golf preview     Send a link to a friend

[AUG. 30, 2004]  Kirk Whiteman, Lincoln College women's golf coach, has just four players on his squad at the present time as they prepare for the season opener Wednesday at the Links in Jacksonville.

"We are going to be short-handed; however, we have some quality golfers," said Whiteman. "Stacy Weaver and Carlie Facker both return from last season, and we are looking for them to have a more consistent game this season. With the experience they gained last season, they should both have good years ahead of them. I look for Carlie to have a breakout year, as she is a hard worker with a lot of determination to improve. I would like to find another player or two as walk-on, which would help our team play greatly."

Weaver is a Warrensburg-Latham High School graduate, while Facker hails from Eureka High School. Joining the two on the squad are Jenine Pelegvoin, an Orland Park sophomore who graduated from Carl Sandburg High School, and Shayla Croy, a freshman who graduated from St. Anthony High School in Effingham.

"Shayla has been shooting in the low to mid-90s all summer, and we look for her to have a good season, if she can make the adjustment to playing the longer college courses," said Whiteman. "Jenine just started playing golf last year, and she is a member of the LC swim team.

"We have upgraded the schedule somewhat this season, as we play in the Western Illinois tourney in Macomb against several Division I schools. Several junior college teams will also be competing in the tourney, and this will give us a good idea of where we stand, leading up to the Region 24 tourney."
