UTC Women Golfers Open Regional Play At Auburn

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team opens NCAA East Regional Play Thursday at Auburn University Club in Auburn, Ala. The three-day, 54-hole event is slated for play May 9-11 with 24 teams and six individuals vying to advance to the NCAA Championship.

This year’s finals host is the University of Georgia. The NCAA Championship is May 21-24 on the UGA Golf Course. Eight teams and two individuals on non-advancing teams will move on from Auburn to Athens.

The Mocs are peaking at the right time after capturing their second win of the year last time out. Victory No. 2 came at the Southern Conference Championship marking four straight for the program. Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) became the third straight Chattanooga medalist in the tourney (Emma de Groot 2011, Jordan Britt 2012) winning with a birdie on the first playoff hole against Mary Chandler Bryan of College of Charleston.

The UTC lineup features Sauzon, Britt, Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada), Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) and Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia). It is the sixth regional appearance for the program in the six years of the program’s existence.
