(New Orleans, La.) The Loyola University New Orleans golf team and freshman golfer Sarah-Anne Smurlick will be featured on the Fourth Down on Four show on WWL-TV hosted by Juan Kincaid on Sunday, April 6 at 10:35 p.m.

Kincaid and his team visited the Wolf Pack golf team at their tournament in March to interview Smurlick, head coach Lisa Tinkler and other golfers concerning Smurlick’s nontraditional role as a student-athlete. Smurlick is a 49-year-old freshman (junior academically) transfer student from Toronto, Ontario in Canada. The journalism major discussed what it is like to compete and interact with her fellow student-athletes and classmates on the course and in the classroom.

Smurlick was named to the All-Tournament Team at both the Emmanuel Spring Invitational in March and the third annual “The BUC” tournament hosted by Christian Brothers University in the fall, and has placed in the top 15 individually in all spring tournaments this season.
