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.
The ladies shot 310 over their final 18. Holly Morgan led the way with a 76. Cristina Perez and Monica San Juan each tallied 77, while Megan Woods and Maddy McDanel both carded 80s.

Perez and Woods tied for 30th overall at 15-over 231. The duo beat one top 50 performer, No. 45 Anna Newell of Tennessee, by five, and another top 100, No. 95 Ayelen Irizar from Campbell, by nine. Monica San Juan also bested the ranked pair ending up 37th at 233.
Morgan tied Newell in 45th at 236. McDanel was one behind them at 237.
