Lee tallied a 321 on Monday and the final 635 total was two strokes better than the 637 turned in by Lipscomb and six strokes better than Belmont's 641 team score. Lindsey Wilson paced fourth (654), Trevecca Nazarene fifth (669) and the host Tennessee State came in with a 749.

"Today was a great first for the women's golf program," said coach John Maupin. "Anytime you can outright win a (NCAA) Division 1 event I think that's a great accomplishment. There were four other women's golf programs from the state of Tennessee represented so to come out on top is a good feeling for our team."

Bernadette Little and Kristin Bourg stepped up to help the Lady Flames pull out the win. Both had a 78 on Tuesday. "We got a huge round from Kristin today. It's really good to see a senior come through like that," the coach pointed out. Sloane Skinner 79-79 - 158) placed sixth in the individual competition. Courtney Shelton (80-79 - 159) followed close behind and tied for seventh overall with teammate Madison Alexander ( 79-80 - 159).

"I was really proud of all the girls today because it was one of those tournaments where no one played their best, but they still battled for every shot. With a two-shot victory that turned out to be crucial." Maupin noted.

Janet Steen of Belmont (76-76 - 152) was the medalist winner. Kaitlin of Lindsey Wilson (82-71 - 153) was second and Danielle Grace of Lipscomb was third (77-77 - 154.).

The Lady Flames will be in Montgomery, Ala. next week and will be going after the Southern States Athletic Conference title.

Roy Exum: Amputee Team Wins Relay

As a news junkie there isn’t a lot that gets past me in my morning reading, yet I had no idea there was a relay race in Chattanooga two weekends ago. Maybe that’s why 1,500 people ran away and never came back – the finish line was in Nashville. How the Ragnar Relays work is pretty simple. The organizers pick two cities that are about 200 miles apart and then 12-to-14 runners ... (click for more)
