NC State women's golf opens its 2022-23 campaign on Monday in Hanahan, S.C. at the 18th-annual Cougar Classic hosted by College of Charleston.

Held annually at the Yeamans Hall Club, it will be the 17th appearance in tournament history for the Wolfpack.

NC State enters the season mixing a wealth of returning talent alongside three highly-talented newcomers, two of which will make their collegiate debuts this week.

Head Coach Page Marsh will begin her 23rd year leading the program by introducing both Vania Simont and Jaclyn Kenzel to the collegiate circuit at Yeamans Hall.

Simont, a freshman from Mexico City, Mexico, was a top-100 player in the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) national rankings when she signed with the Wolfpack, shining as an amateur with top-15 individual finishes at the 2021 Women's Amateur Latin America and 2021 Mexican Amateur, as well as reaching the round of 16 at the 2022 US Women's Amateur Fourball.

Kenzel begins her NC State career as a junior, having spent two years on campus before becoming a student-athlete. Hailing from Southern Pines, N.C., Kenzel attended Pinecrest High School where she collected two top-three finishes in NCHSAA State Championship events during her career. More recently, Kenzel earned a top-five finish at the 2022 North Carolina Women's State Amatuer earlier this year at the River Landing Golf Club in Wallace, N.C.

Senior Natalie Armbruester will be competing for the Wolfpack as well after being one of three NC State golfers to participate in all ten of the team's tournaments last season. A former member of the Swiss National Junior Team, Armbruester is loaded with experience that includes a T32nd finish at last season's Stillwater, Okla. NCAA Regional.

Junior Isabel Amezcua looks to continue a career in Raleigh after a busy summer, having competed at both the US Women's Amateur at the Chambers Bay Golf Course as well as the North & South Women's Amateur at Pinehurst No. 2 & No. 4. Amezcua saw action in all ten tournaments the Wolfpack played in last year, including a top-ten finish at the Briar's Creek Invitational.

Rounding out NC State's lineup is sophomore Lauren Olivares Leon, who posted one of the top freshman-season campaigns in program history in 2021-22. Her scoring average of 73.19 was the lowest amongst any freshman to compete for the Wolfpack and ranked fourth all-time. Additionally, all 27 rounds which she competed in counted towards the team's score, the only NC State player to earn a rounds-counted average of 1.000.

36 holes are set to be played on Monday at Yeamans Hall beginning with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start, with the final round of the 54-hole event slated for Tuesday at 8:45 a.m.

Live stats will be available throughout the tournament's entirety on GolfStat.com.

NC State women's golf wrapped up its first tournament of the 2022-23 season on Tuesday, posting a T10th finish alongside Wisconsin with a 54-hole score of 861 (+9).

The week was highlighted by four of the Wolfpack's five competitors posting a career low, with NC State as a team posting the lowest cumulative score in program history in the second round with a 278 (-6).

Freshman Vania Simont shined in her collegiate debut, firing a bogey-free 68 (-3) in her opening round and a two-under par round of 69 on Tuesday to close the tournament. Simont's efforts were enough to earn a top-15 finish at T13th, the best finish amongst a Wolfpack golfer in the Cougar Classic since India Clyburn matched her at T13th in 2016.

Natalie Armbruester's week included a career-low round of 68 (-3) in round two, in addition to a season-opening 69 (-2) in round one. Lauren Olivares Leon also posted a career-low round, adding a second-round score of four-under par 67 sandwiched between rounds of 76 (+5) in the opening and closing rounds.

Isabel Amezcua finished the week at T56th, with her best score coming in the second round at 72 (+1). Her Monday afternoon effort included five back-nine birdies, including three consecutive birdies to close her round.

Rounding out the Wolfpack lineup was newcomer Jaclyn Kenzel, whose low score also came during round two with an even-par 71.

With nearly a month-long break from competition now on the docket, NC State will now turn its focus to the Ivy Intercollegiate at the iconic Baltusrol Golf Club on October 10-11.

They each shot 4-over par in the opening round before separating their scores in round two, shooting 2-over par and 1-over par, respectively. Olivares Leon closed out the final round at 5-over par to tie for 43rd place, while Amezcua tied for 48th place overall, shooting 7-over par in the final round to close out the competition on Tuesday.

NC State women's golf is set to compete in its final tournament of the 2022-23 fall schedule this weekend, with Friday serving as the opening round of the 20th annual Landfall Tradition hosted by UNCW at the Country Club of Landfall. The Wolfpack will compete alongside five other ACC programs in what is consistently one of the top collegiate events in the country. 54 holes of stroke play competition are slated to be played over three day of play.

NC State will be bringing five golfers to Wilmington, N.C. to compete, with four members of the Pack making their fourth appearance of the season.

Olivares Leon has led the way for the Wolfpack thus far, posting an average score of 73.25 per round and earning a career-best T4th finish at the Ivy Intercollegiate at the Balusrol Golf Club. Additionally, Armbruester and Amezcua are the only two NC State golfers to have all eight of their rounds in stroke play competition counted towards the team score.

Freshman Vania Simont has proved to be a pivotal addition to the Pack's roster this fall, having been the only member of NC State's squad to tally two top-20 finishes thus far. Simont will look to continue her hot streak this weekend as she kicks off the tournament with an 8:57 a.m. tee time on Friday.
