Moc Golfers In Action This Weekend

Friday, October 20, 2017
-It’s been a little while since the Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team saw a competitive round. A month to be exact with the cancellation of an event between now and the Lady Paladin Invitational (Sept. 22-24).
 
As one can imagine, the Mocs are eager to return to the links. The quintet of Cristina Perez, Megan Woods, Monica San Juan, Holly Morgan and Maddy McDanel are in an enviable position with 27 rounds of experience at Turtle Point at the Kiawah Island Resort.
 
San Juan owns a 73.
17 scoring average over her six cards turned in at the Palmetto Intercollegiate. She tied for 11th (+3, 219) aiding the Mocs charge to a second-place finish in 2015 and tied for eighth (+4, 220) last October.
 
Perez and Woods have nine rounds apiece on the tract. The duo tied for 23rd in 2015 with solid numbers ending up at 7 over. Morgan’s memories are positive tying for 19th a year ago with a total of 224 (+8). McDanel is the only member of the lineup not to have collegiate experience at Turtle Point.
 
An 18-team field awaits the Gig City Ladies. SoCon rivals ETSU and Mercer are there along with top 50 program Campbell (48) with a few more, including the Mocs, knocking on the door.
 
The three-day, 54-hole event begins Sunday, Oct. 22, concluding Tuesday, Oct. 24. Links to live scoring, pairings and notes are above.

Why Can't Someone Unstop The Water Buildup Problem At The I-24 Cummings Highway Exit? - And Response

Exit 174 on westbound Interstate 24 is closed again as is the westbound entrance ramp. Cummings Highway is shut as well. I inquired at TDOT on Dec. 28, 2015, why this continues to happen. The engineer’s response was that the drain from ground west of the interstate runs under private land and cover over it has caused that pipe to collapse. Obviously flow still goes through, ...

Roy Exum: ‘We’ll Lose The Senate!’

A guy who I admire and respect wrote me yesterday. He had just read my story defending Bob Corker for honoring “The Code” due to his true friendship with Phil Bredesen. He is also no stranger to my vivid dislike of the Republican choice to replace Corker in the Senate. Marsha Blackburn is no match against Bredesen on any tier and it is clearly the Republican Party itself that has ... (click for more)
