At a Glance: One of the more athletic teams on Altered Course, sisters Ariana and Milena Savich have experience in team competition – both represented their father’s native country of Serbia in the European and World Amateur Team Championships, and Milena has a goal of representing Serbia in the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Ariana and Milena are of mixed Serbian and Greek descent.  Athletics run in their family's blood, as their father was a football placekicker at Central Michigan University and later for the Michigan Panthers of the USFL and the Green Bay Packers.
Milena, a graduate of the University of Georgia, is currently in her rookie season on the Symetra Tour while younger sister Ariana, a University of Missouri graduate, is working in the business side of golf in the LPGA Tour’s communications department.

Both are competing on Altered Course with collective chips on their shoulders.  Milena underachieved as a member of the Georgia women’s golf team, while Ariana battled a wrist injury her junior and senior years at Missouri, limiting her competition.  

“I didn’t end my college golf career the way I wanted to,” said Ariana, who graduated from Missouri in December.  “This is my opportunity to finish this chapter in my life – with a win with my sister.”
