A-Sun Insider: FGCU's Van Etten On Par with SAAC

Friday, January 25, 2013

Megan Van Etten is looking forward to her FGCU women’s golf team being back on the course next week.

And why not? FGCU finished in the top half of three of the four tournaments in which it played in the fall, including a second-place finish in the 14-team field of the LPGA/Xavier Invitational and fourth in the 10-team field at the Courtyard Invitational. In each of those three events, the Eagles led or were in the top three after the first rounds.

“Our team did really well in the fall, and certainly we are looking for things to go nowhere but up in the spring. For us the key to being successful this spring is just to keep working hard and to not steer away from that focus. We have a solid ‘team,’ and if you look at our results there is not one standout, but everyone contributes.”

Along with contributing to the Eagles on the course, Van Etten is plugged in as a valuable member of FGCU’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
