Charleston Southern continues to stay locally throughout the spring season as CSU has lined up on courses on Kiawah Island, Johns Island, and now Edisto Island. They made their lone road trip of the spring back on March 4-5 to Jacksonville for the UNF Collegiate.

Ellen Hume continues to be a force in the Big South as the freshman currently sits sixth overall in scoring average. Hume is averaging 73.47 strokes per round on the year and is a two-time Big South Freshman of the Week recipient after strong performances in Match Play in the fall, as well as at the Kiawah Spring Classic.

Andriel Aimua and Daniela Intriago are also among the conference's top 20 players in scoring average. Aimua is 12th overall at 76.12, while Intriago is 20th at 77.64.

The trio will look to build off a strong campaign with contributions from freshmen Kathryn Thorne and Sarah Hameed.
