On Wednesday, the Tennessee women's golf team announced its complete tournament schedule for the upcoming 2014-15 season.

Head coach Judi Pavon will lead the Lady Vols into their new season with two heralded recruits Anna Newell and Blakesly Warren. The two freshmen will look to replace the production lost from Chessey Thomas, the team's 2013-14 leader in stroke average.

"I'm really looking forward to this season ," Pavon said. "We have a very competitive schedule planned with some familiar stops - Cougar Classic, Mercedes and Darius Rucker - as well as some new tournaments to give us great experience. The Golfweek Conference Challenge in Vail, Colo., is a very nice event and we are looking forward to the San Diego State Women's Invitational as it will be a match play tournament to give teams experience before the National Championship.

"We return 7 of 8 players and have two talented newcomers joining the squad [Newell and Warren]. We will still be a young team, but with much more experience at this level than we were last season."

The Lady Vols will have three seniors, Mason Chen, AJ Newell, and Daeun Song. In addition, UT will have a loaded sophomore class comprised of Teleri Hughes, Lucia Polo, and sisters Hannah and Emmie Pietila.

Earlier this summer, Hannah Pietila competed in the U.S. Women's Open with former Lady Vol Erica Popson.

Coach Pavon will also welcome the arrival of assistant coach Chris Griffin. The former Murray State assistant women's golf coach brings a wealth of experience and expertise to Knoxville. Griffin is from Paducah, Ky., and recently finished in a tie for 9th place at the Kentucky Amateur this summer.

The new Big Orange squad will play a schedule that includes challenging courses, entertaining venues and locations, and competition against some of the nation's best programs.
