Lee Women In NAIA Golf Championship

Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Courtney Shelton improved her game by seven strokes in the second round of the NAIA Women's Golf Championships, but no other Lady Flame was unable to improve their scores and Lee finished with a team score of 325 on Wednesday and stands at 317-325 (642) after 36 holes of the tourney.

Bernadette Litte was tied for second when Wednesday play began, but carded an 82 in round two and is at 157.
Shelton bounced back after Tuesday's 83 with a 76 (159). Next came Sloane Skinner (77-82 - 159), followed by Madison Alexander (82-85 - 167). Chelsea Rakestraw rounded out the Lee scoring with an 87-91 - 178.

"Conditions were tough during the morning round today," said coach John Maupin. "It was quite cold out and the wind was a major factor. However, we still made same mistakes that we need to eliminate going into the next two days. Courtney (Shelton) bounced back and had a good round for us today. We just need to get everybody going on the same day. There is still a lot of golf left and I'm confident that our best round is still out there."

The Lady Flames will begin round three of the 72-hole event tied for 14th. Oklahoma City and Cal State San Marcos are tied for first place with a 615 total. Lubbock Christian (618), British Columbia (620) and SCADSavannah (627) round out the top five.

Jessica Schiele of Oklahoma City tied an NAIA tournament record when she fired an impressive 68 on Wednesday and is the medalist leader after day two with an 143.

Rather than spend millions upgrading Signal Mountain’s historic grammar school so it can continue to house the Mountain Arts Community Center (MACC), it would make more sense to incorporate that project into a larger multi-pronged one that would solve several issues facing the community, according to town manager Boyd Veal.   For example, Mr. Veal said, the current ...

But suddenly my rapt attention is riveted on Coeur d'Alene again because a dazzling social experiment is taking place this very moment at a plush resort in north Idaho. Several ... (click for more)
