Lee Women Fourth At Flagler Fall Slam

Tuesday, October 24, 2017
 Led by a sizzling round from sophomore Haverly Harrold the No. 21 Lee women's golf team finished fourth at the Flagler Fall Slam.

Harrold fired a 4-under par 68 and finished tied for fifth to claim All-Tournament honors with an even par 144 total. Harrold's mark ties the second lowest round in program history and was a clean bogey-free trip around the 6,062-yard Marsh Creek Country Club.

"Haverly gave us a really special round today, and continues to be a driving force for us.
She was steady all day, and it was just a very impressive round of golf," said head coach John Maupion. "Sam (Burrus) and Annika (Gino) also gave us good tournaments—anytime we can get three players in the top 15 of a field like this, it's going to be a plus."
 
Burrus finished with a final round 75 and posted a 149 total (+5) to end tied for 14th. Gino followed suite as she also shot 75 and completed the tournament at 5-over-par.
 
"We put together a really nice team round today, 293 out here is a good score.  I thought we really pulled together on the back nine and had a great team stretch of golf," added Maupin. "It's definitely good to see us make a run up the leaderboard the last day—our players did a great job of staying patient and focused for most of both rounds."

As a team the Lady Flames ended 596 total and placed fourth in the 18-team field. Lee finished ahead of No. 6 Tarleton State who finished fifth and No. 15 St. Edwards who ended in eighth.

No. 10 Barry (585) won the event by one stroke over No. 25 Tampa (586). No. 18 Wingate placed third four shots ahead of Lee with a 592 total.

Tarleton State's Casey Wild backed up an even par first round with a 4-under par 68 to win the medalist competition. Wild tied Harrold for the best round of the tournament. Diana McDonald (Wingate) finished second at 2-under while Worapitcha Anudit (Seminole State) and Tilda Larsson (Barry) placed one shot ahead of Harrold in a tie for third at 1-under.

"It's a good round to end the fall on. It's going to be important for us to have a very productive off-season, which is where we'll turn our attention next. It's been a solid fall, but we have a really strong team, and I just feel like there's a whole other level we can reach. It's going to be an exciting spring," concluded Maupin.

The Lady Flames will tee it up to open 2018 on Feb. 19-20 at the Converse College Spring Invite from Spartanburg, S.C.

Set Up A Council On Love, Not A Council On Hate

In Mayor Berke's April 19 version of the Berke Bulletin, he announced plans to establish a Council on Hate and indicated a focus on tolerance. I beg of him to reconsider that plan. One problem in Chattanooga and in other places in America is that there are some people who have already established an informal version of a Council on Hate. I suggest that a more productive plan ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Always Know The Facts

I adore the fact so many of America’s high school and college students are very active in our battle against violence in our schools but bemoan the fact that when you combine youth and ‘lack of experience’ they often are misguided and ill-informed. The best example came on Saturday when a reporter for Campus Reform walked around the Cal State-Santa Barbara campus asking the students ... (click for more)
