Lee Golfers Tied For Second

Monday, February 10, 2014
One would have to call it near-perfect timing by Lee golf coach John Maupin. While most of the area is worried about possible snow today and tomorrow, Maupin has his women's team in San Diego, Calif.

The Lady Flames are taking part in the Super San Diego Women's Golf Championship. The weatherman is calling for partly clouded skies with temperatures in the 60's today and climbing into the 70's on Tuesday.

Apparently the Lady Flames are enjoying the warmer weather. Led by senior Courtney Shelton's 3-over par 75, Lee trails the tournament leader, host Point Loma Nazarene, heading into the final round of the 36-hole event.
Point Loma stands at 308 and the Lady Flames posted a 315, two strokes ahead of the tournament favorite, California Baptist (317).

The overall battle for medalist honors is a log jam. Cal Baptist's Mervl Monsaive, Point Loma's Mariah Fuller and Lee's Shelton are tied at 75. four other golfers are 1-stroke back at 76, and still another three are 2-strokes off the pace.

Cori Burns and Bernadette Little helped keep the Lady Flames in contention with 79s and Madison Alexander had an 82 to round out the scores that counted for Lee. Callie Kitchens tallied an 83.

"Overall I thought we did some really nice things out there," said Maupin, "and it has left us in good position for tomorrow. We hit a lot of quality shots, and I thought our short games were solid for the first round of the year. That said, we had some unforced errors today that we would like to clean up tomorrow. We had some big numbers that we could have controlled better, and those add up quickly. We are still in the hunt though, and that's what matters. I believe our best round is definitely still out there."
