HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, FL -- The George Washington Golf team will compete in the 32nd annual Atlantic 10 Conference Men's Golf Championship this weekend, April 30-May 2, at the par-72, 7,003-yard El Campeon course at the Mission Inn Resort near Orlando. The Colonials placed eighth at the 2009 Atlantic 10 Championship with a team total 937 (314-318-305), 65 strokes behind tournament champion Charlotte (872).

The Championship tees off on Friday, April 30, with Charlotte vying to become the first A-10 program to win five consecutive golf titles since Penn State won five straight crowns from 1986-91. Joining the Colonials and Charlotte in the quest for the 2010 A-10 title are Dayton, Duquesne, Fordham, La Salle, Rhode Island, Richmond, Saint Joseph's, St. Bonaventure, Temple and Xavier. Tee times for all three rounds of the Championship begin at 8:00 a.m.

GW is led by senior Cole Turner's 75.2 stroke average this season. Junior Brendan Barrack (75.3) and sophomore Martin Liu (76.0) also figure to score well for the Colonials in Florida.

Home of the 1998 & 2000 NCAA Men's Golf Championship, Mission Inn Resort has been ranked among the "top 10 of Florida's favorite golf courses" by Florida Golf News; received the "Four-Star Award" by Golf Digest; and was recognized as one of the nation's "top 100 golf courses" by Links Magazine.
