Moc Golfers Within Shot Of Furman At Women's SoCon Championship

Monday, April 14, 2014

Monday is “moving day” at the Southern Conference Women’s Golf Championship and that’s just what the Chattanooga Mocs did. The squad started the day tied for second seven shots out of the lead and ended it alone within one shot of Furman.

The Mocs shot 295 powered by Jordan Britt’s (Chattanooga, Tenn.) three-under par 69 today. She was joined as Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) and Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) with 75’s and Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) with a 76.

McLennan remains the overall leader at plus four (148). She is a single stroke ahead of Britt in second, while Furman’s Taylor Totland is third at 150. Sauzon is tied for eighth at 154.

The Paladins went into the day ahead by seven strokes. They increased to double digits during the round as the two teams battled. The Mocs were just one over at the turn, but still lost a stroke to the leaders. Furman was even on the day through 12 before struggling over the final six holes.

While the Paladins were playing the final half dozen at 13-over par, Chattanooga stayed steady. It played the first 12 holes at one over and ended it at plus six over the final six. Furman (606) and the Mocs (607) separated themselves from the pack. Elon is in third at 620, while Samford is in fourth at 621.

Today’s 295 is the best second round tally in SoCon Tourney history for the Mocs and second lowest overall behind a four-over par 292 in 2011’s final round. They return to the course Tuesday morning paired with Furman and Elon for an 8:30 a.m., shotgun start. Live scoring and tee times are linked above.

Problems With The Proposed Apartments In Lookout Valley

I am deeply troubled at the way in which this proposal has been handled. The blatant disregard for the residents of Kelly's Ferry Road and the wishes of the Lookout Valley Area Plan (which was adopted by the city in 2003) by Chip Henderson and Tommy Austin amazes me. Yes, there was a meeting of the Lookout Valley Neighborhood association in August, but it wasn't on its normal ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Already, 248 Mass Shootings

There is not a word – not one – that I can use to respond to Dr. Loretta P. Prater, whose letter in Chattanoogan.com just condemned the idea that proposed volunteers in the Chattanooga Police Department be armed. Dr. Pater signed her letter, “Mother of Homicide Victim Leslie Vaughn Prater” and I’ve no doubt there is nothing in this world that will assuage the lifelong horror she ... (click for more)
