Tampa cruises to win in RMAC Fall Preview

Colorado Mesa's Ashlyn Kirschner follows through on her tee shot Tuesday during the second round of the RMAC Fall Preview at Tiara Rado Golf Course. Kirschner shot an 81 on Tuesday and finished tied for 24th with a two-day total of 157.

University of Tampa women's golf coach Missey Jones wanted her team to experience more than Florida, and if you're going to travel all the way to western Colorado for a tournament, you might as well make it an adventure.

The Spartans flew to Denver on Friday and drove through the mountains, making a pitstop in Glenwood Springs at the suggestion of Colorado Mesa coach Scott Hansen. Hansen joked he hoped playing at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park might rattle the players just enough that they wouldn't play their best in the RMAC Fall Preview on Monday and Tuesday at Tiara Rado Golf Course.
