Rushing Holds Her Own Against the Men
MT. VERNON -- SIU senior golfer Cassie Rushing is playing the 89th SIGA Championship at Green Hills Golf Club in the men's championship flight this year.
This is the fourth time the Marion native has competed against the opposite sex in tournament play. Rushing carded a first round 76 Saturday, 10 strokes off the lead.
Rushing says it's a lot tougher playing from the back tee boxes but she loves the challenge that goes along with it.
