Columbus, Ga.—The North Greenville women’s golf team opened up its 2014 half of the schedule this weekend, with the 54 hole, TSYS Collegiate Classic, hosted by Columbus State University.

Dibert turned in rounds of 78, 80, and 81 during the two-day tournament.

"The girls competed hard all 54 holes this week, which I am extremely proud of,” remarked assistant coach Brad Caldwell. “ “Unfortunately, we showed a lot of rust with this being the first event of the spring. Country Club of Columbus is a phenomenal track, and was a great test for the girls.”
