Sunday, February 17, 2019
The Chattanooga Mocs earned a solid fifth-place finish in the Reynolds Lake Oconee Invite Sunday. The squad completed the unique event with a 907 total which was six shots ahead of SEC-member Missouri in sixth.

The Mocs finished off the last nine holes of round two in the morning at 299. That put the group tied for third with Kentucky and Texas Tech, five strokes behind No. 6 Vanderbilt. They shot 311 in the afternoon to drop back into fifth against a strong field.

Junior Kirsty Beckwith led the way tying for 13th with a 10-over 226.
That was one ahead of fellow junior Maddy McDanel’s 227 which was good for a tie for 19th. Monica San Juan was next at 229, one clear of Rheagan Hall’s 230. Esme Hamilton finished with 235, while Dorota Zalewska turned in 240.

All five starters contributed to the team total. They ended the second round with Beckwith and San Juan’s 74s to go with McDanel’s 75 and Hamilton’s 76. The final round was led by Hall with 76. She was supported by McDanel (77), San Juan (79) and Hamilton (79). 

The Commodores claimed the title with an 881 total. Mercer was second at 896 followed by Texas Tech and Kentucky with 896. TTU’s Sofia Garcia was medalist at 3-under 213.

The Mocs return to the tee March 4-5 at the UNF Collegiate. The two-day, 54-hole event is played at Jacksonville Golf & Country Club in Jacksonville, Fla.
