Four rounds at this week's NCAA championship tournament in Owings Mills, Md., will determine whether the University of Denver women's golf team can improve upon its sixth-place finish of a year ago.

But DU coach Sammie Chergo is certain of one thing: Her team will compete as hard as any team out there in the tournament that begins Tuesday.

That's how Chergo coaches. That's who she recruits. DU's roster is filled with all-around athletes who have excelled at several sports and know what it takes to succeed.
