Two Lady Flames Lead Smokey Mountain Golf Intercollegiate

Monday, September 09, 2013

In its first tournament against all NCAA teams, the Lee women's golf team did more than hold its own in the opening round of the Smokey Mountain Intercollegiate on Monday.

With junior Madison Alexander and Bernadette Little leading the day, the Lady Flames will be five strokes behind West Florida (296) and three strokes back of St. Leo (Fla.) heading into the final round on Tuesday.

Both Alexander and Little are tied for medalist honors after posting 1-over scores of 73 on the par 72, 5816 yard Highlands Course. A pair of West Florida players, Camila Sevilano and Aimee Patterson are tied with Alexander and Little.

"I was really pleased with what I saw from our women today," said coach John Maupin after the opening round. "I think depth will be strength of this team, and that was backed up today as we threw out a 78, the lowest score of any team."

Added Maupin, "This is our first true D2 event, and it’s a strong field.  A 301 was a solid start from our team. We are in a good position heading into tomorrow, and I think we have some shots we can get back from today."

A total of 17 teams and 90 individual players are taking part in the annual event. Courtney Shelton is tied for 21th (77) and is expected to move toward the top on Tuesday. Callie Kitchens and Sarah Robertson each totaled a 78.
