Senior Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) finished tied for fourth at the 3M Jaguar Intercollegiate. Britt closed with an even-par 72 on her second 18 of the day to end up at seven over for the tournament at 223.
It’s her fourth top five of the season, fifth top 10. She opened with rounds of 76 and 75 as the team ended up 11th with a 936 total over the 54 holes at Forest Hills Golf Club.
The Mocs could not overcome a slow start. The final round 299 (+11) was the second-best 18 of the afternoon round. Chattanooga ended up one stroke behind Coastal Carolina (935).
Britt’s 72 was one better than Emily McLennan’s (Queensland, Australia) 73 with Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) and Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga) each posting 77 for the afternoon score. McLennan was second to Britt in the team scoring tying for 30th (233).
No. 14 Vanderbilt (896) came back from a one-stroke deficit to capture the team title by 10 over Mercer (906). East Tennessee was a distant third (911). Mercer’s Lacey Fears was the wire-to-wire winner at one-over par 217. Illinois’ Samantha Postillion was runner-up at 221.
The event was slated to be a three-day affair. Inclement weather expected on Sunday forced the field to play 36 holes today to complete the full 54 holes.
Chattanooga returns to the tee box March 24-25 at the Briar’s Creek Invitational. The two-day, 54-hole tournament is played in Charleston, S.C.
