Moc Golfers Third At SoCon Championships

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
The Chattanooga Mocs men’s golf team ended up third at the Southern Conference Championships. The Mocs carded 292 over the final 18 holes to end with 875 over the three day.

Will Porter ended the tournament with a 2-under 70 and the trio of Oliver Simonsen, Lake Johnson and Etienne Brault each posted 74. Connor Nolan had the drop score with 76.

Simonsen tied for fourth overall with 2-under 214. Johnson and Porter tied for 10th with 221, while Brault and Nolan just missed the top 20 tying for 22nd at 225.

UNCG ran away with the title with an 11-under par 853.
That’s the best winning total since Furman’s 2010 squad fired 15-under 849 at the Country Club of South Carolina breaking Chattanooga’s stretch of three straight titles in 2007, 2008 and 2009. ETSU was second with 865.

"I'm proud of the fight and the effort this week," Coach Mark Guhne said. "We had one so-so round and it bit us. Give UNCG credit, they played really well and deserved to win.

"Grateful to see Lake and E have good ends to their careers. They've been great to have in our program and have bright futures ahead."

The Bucs Shiso Go won a two-hole playoff to claim medalist over UNCG’s Nick Lyerly. The duo shot 11-under 205. The Spartans’ Zack Swanson (211) was third ahead of Simonsen and ETSU’s Trevor Hulbert at 214.

Simonsen earned All-Southern Conference honors announced in the awards ceremony following championship completion. He’s the 31st Moc named to the squad. His fourth-place finish is the squad’s 29th top 5 in the event.

"Oliver had a strong season," Guhne added. "He earned that all-conference honor. He got his first win, almost shot under par for the year and improved his average by almost four strokes.

"We're excited about the roster we'll have in 2019-20 and working toward a seventh SoCon title."

Put Money Towards Our Youth Instead Of Remodeling Downtown

Our school systems are weakening more and more each year. The school system is always put on the back burner financially. No raise for teachers, no remodels, not even new books for our children. When budget cuts come from city officials they take from the schools first. How can you get an education when your building is falling apart? Instead of remodeling downtown Chattanooga ...
