Charting their course
The Tiger women’s golf program is the newest of Towson’s intercollegiate athletics programs.
The women’s golf program was started in 2007 as Brian Yaniger, the coach of the men’s program took charge.
Yaniger guided the women’s golf team for four years until Kate Stepanek was hired as head coach of the women’s program prior to the 2011 season.
It didn't take long for the Tigers to find success on the links.
The women’s golf team celebrated its first-ever tournament championship in 2007 when the Tigers won the Mount St. Mary’s Tournament. In 2009, Towson earned its second tournament victory, winning the Dartmouth Invitational.
In 2011, Airielle Dawson achieved notoriety for the Tigers when she shot a career low, final round 72 to run away with women's medalist honors at the 25th Annual PGA of America Minority Collegiate Golf Championships on the Ryder Course.
