Lee Women Golfers Win Big In Lady Flames Shootout

Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Convincing might be the only way to describe the Lee women's golf team performance in the annual Lady Flames Shootout.

Finishing with a two day total of 324-305 - 629, coach John Maupin's club won by 25 strokes over North Georgia (326-328 - 654) in the 36-hole event played on the Cleveland Country Club course.

Shorter University (328-335 - 663) was third, while Trevecca Nazarene (337-332 - 669) was third and Tennessee Wesleyan (348-338 - 686) rounded out the top five finishers in the nine-team field.


Senior Courtney Shelton fired a 2-under 70 on Tuesday to lead the Lady Flames' victory. She rolled in a 40-foot putt on the 18th hole to conclude an outstanding round. In earning medalist honors, Shelton battled back from an 81 on Monday to post the 151 result and win by six strokes over Shorter's Carolin Westerburg, who claimed second-place.

"I am really happy for Courtney," Maupin said. "She made quite a comeback for the individual title today, and capped a 1-shot victory with that long birdie putt on the last hole."

Lee's Cori Burns (81-77 - 158) and King University's Elizabeth Swallows (80-78 - 158) tied for third place and two other Lady Flames, Callie Kitchens and Bernadette Little, came in at (81-79 - 160), all joining Shelton, Swallow and Burns on the all-tournament squad.

Lee's Madison Alexander had an 81-84 - 165 and Sarah Robertson, playing in the individual field of 47 golfers, placed eighth with an 80-82 - 162.

"I am very pleased for us to end our (fall) season in this way," said Maupin. "We played much better today, and it feels great to end the fall with two wins. It is also important for us to defend our home course, and we played with that kind of purpose today. Overall, I am pleased with what we accomplished this week on a tough course."

Maupin stressed his appreciation for the support of the Country Club. "I want to first thank Lamar Mills, Jeff Travis, each of their staffs, and the members at Cleveland Country Club for being great hosts this week. The golf course was in excellent shape, and I thought everyone involved helped make this a great event for all the teams involved."
