UTC's McLennan Advances To Tennessee Women's Amateur Final

Thursday, June 19, 2014

Chattanooga Mocs rising junior Emily McLennan is in the finals of the 82nd Tennessee Women’s Amateur at Cherokee Country Club in Knoxville. McLennan has breezed through her half of the bracket.

McLennan was seventh in stroke play qualifying at 5-over par 147. She turned in rounds of 75 (+4) and 72 (+1) to set up an opening match with a familiar opponent.

Teammate Sarah Dolmovich was the initial foe. McLennan got by her fellow Moc 4&3 before dispatching Lincoln Memorial’s Lindy Mae McGuire 7&6.

That set up a Thursday morning meeting with Lee’s redshirt freshman Sam Burrus which was a 3&1 win for the Aussie. She wasted no time winning her semifinal matchup with Brentwood amateur Lynda Wimberly by a decisive 8&6 total.

McLennan heads to the tee at 9 a.m., Friday morning facing Kendall Martindale. Martindale, a 2014-15 senior at Vanderbilt, is a two-time winner of the event in 2009 and 2011. She topped A.J. Newell 2&1 in the semis.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?

I confess that this year I am having a hard time with the idea of celebrating the 4th of July Independence Day. It is not because I am not thankful to God for what was done on that day, what it represents, and the blessings I’ve experienced that flow from it. On the other hand, I want to think that maybe this year’s celebration will mark a period in our history in which a new movement ... (click for more)
