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.

How To Kill Small Business And Education In Chattanooga

   I would just like to say that the weathermen of Chattanooga have done something I thought only a union could do. They have undone all the economic good that VW has brought to our area. Their erroneous and hysteric forecasts are in my opinion purposefully done to benefit their corporate owners so viewers and readers flock to their felonious broadcasts and yellow ...
