GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's and women's golf teams are headed to Howey-In-The-Hills, Fla., for the Horizon League Golf Championship, which will begin Friday. For the second straight year, the teams will be playing a three-day, 54-hole tournament at Mission Inn Resort and Club, with the final round set for Sunday.

Last season, the Green Bay men finished fourth at the Horizon League Championships. With experience on their sides, juniors Chad Ebert and Cam Fuller look to lead the Phoenix to a conference title this season. Ebert finished in eighth place and Fuller placed 13th at the 2011 league championships.

Ebert, a junior, shot a season-low round of 69 at the Butler Invitational this past fall, finishing tied for third place. His season scoring average is a team-best 74.5. Fuller looks to continue his play this week after coming off a season-low 72 two weekends ago at the Detroit Mercy Invitational. Sophomore Dan Ozga seeks to continue his great play, coming off a season low round of 69 at the Bradley Invitational. Ozga's season scoring average is 76.1, second on the squad.

On the women's side, the Phoenix will be led by junior Christina De Boer and senior Eleanor Yorobe. DeBoer leads the Green Bay team with a season scoring average of 84.5 and a low round of 78 at the Western Illinois Invitational. Yorobe, with a season scoring average of 86.6, looks to finish her career strong. She shot her season low round of 79 at the Valparaiso Invitational. Last season, the Phoenix women placed seventh at the HL Tournament.

Play will begin Friday morning and will continue through Sunday. Live scoring updates will be available throughout the championship and can be accessed on GolfStat.com for both the men and the women.
