Olivia Cason is only a freshman on the University of Louisville women’s golf team but she’s already competing on a national stage.

Cason journeyed to Eugene, Oregon this week where she will participate in the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship, starting on Friday at the Eugene Country Club. She will tee off at 11:25 a.m. Louisville time.

The Owensboro native is the third student-athlete in UofL program history to qualify as an individual and one of 12 participating in the three-day event. She will play 18 holes on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Should she rank as one of the top nine individuals not on a team advancing to match play, Cason will play an additional round of 18 on Monday for the individual national title that will be televised on the Golf Channel.

For up-to-the-minute updates, follow the team’s Twitter account at @UofLWGolf or on Facebook at UofLWGolf.  Her personal twitter account is @oliviajanecason.
