Tuesday, October 31, 2017
-The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team finished 10th against a stellar field at the Trinity Forest Invitational Tuesday. The Mocs 923 total was one ahead of Campbell and four clear of 22nd-ranked UNLV.

Morgan tied Newell in 45th at 236. McDanel was one behind them at 237.
