Chattanooga Women Tied For 19th After 18 Holes

Thursday, May 08, 2014

CLE ELUM, Wash. --- The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team battled the cold and rain to shoot 316 in the opening round of the NCAA West Regional. Chattanooga is tied for 19th with Notre Dame after 18 holes at Tumble Creek at Suncadia Resort.


Senior Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) led the way with a five-over par 77. She was followed by Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada) at 79, while Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) and Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) each carded 80’s. Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) had the drop score with an 81.

The Mocs are two strokes out of 17th place where New Mexico and Portland State are tied at 314. Along with the Fighting Irish, the duo is one ahead of Gonzaga, San Diego State and New Mexico State which are tied for 21st at 317.

No. 1 USC leads after an impressive four-under par 284. The Trojans played in the morning group and are four clear of No. 11 Washington (288) in second and five ahead of No. 6 Arizona State (289). Kyung Kim (USC) is the individual leader at 66 (-6). Noemi Jimenez (Arizona State) and Marijosse Navarro (Texas A&M) are tied for second at 67.

It was cloudy during the morning 18. The Mocs’ day started at 12:55 p.m., local time. The rain started at just about the same time. Just three schools – UC Davis (T7), Wisconsin (9) and Denver (T10) – finished the day in the top 12 that began it after the morning wave. UC Davis’s plus-12 300 was pretty good in those conditions.

Round two starts at 10:30 a.m., Eastern time on Friday. Chattanooga heads out at 11:25 a.m., led by Sauzon. Playing with Tennessee and New Mexico again tomorrow, she is followed by Loza (11:36), McLennan (11:47), Campbell (11:58) and Britt (12:09).
