Chattanooga Women Open Season At Cardinal Golf Cup

Sunday, September 15, 2013

The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team begins the 2013-14 season Monday at the Cardinal Cup at the Cardinal Club in Simpsonville, Ky. The 54-hole event starts with 36 holes tomorrow and ends with a final 18 on Tuesday.

Colette Murray’s Mocs have high expectations. It is the start of a busy stretch for the squad.

“We changed up our schedule a bit this year with a few more 36/18’s (two-day tournaments),” Murray stated. “So we’ll be able to play more tournaments, which is good. We’re looking for a good start at Louisville and try to get wins in the fall.

“It’s going to be a very fast fall with five tournaments in as many, if not less, weeks.”

The travel squad includes all six team members. Senior Jordan Britt (Chattanooga), juniors Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France), Mette Kryger (Nivaa, Denmark) and sophomores Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) and Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) make up the first five of 2013-14, while Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada) is playing as an individual.
