UTC Goflers 5th After Round One Of Mercedes-Benz Championships

Monday, September 16, 2019
The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team’s start to the 2019-20 mirrored the weather Monday at Cherokee Country Club. The Mocs shot twin 289s for a 10-over 578 total standing fifth in the Mercedes-Benz Championships.

Senior Maddy McDanel leads the way for her squad with even-par 71s on both cards. That puts her in a tie for 10th, three ahead of teammate Rheagan Hall tied for 20th with 145 who posted 72 in the morning and 73 in a sizzling afternoon round.

Dorota Zalewska registered the low UTC 18 with 1-under 70 in the morning.
She tallied 148 today which is one clear of Esme Hamilton. Kirsty Beckwith is another stroke behind at 150, while Michaela Kulhankova shot 155.

The counting cards turned in 13 birdies over the opening 18, 11 in the heat of the day for round two. The key to round two was cutting scores higher than bogey from three in the AM to just one. There’s more in the notes below, but the 578 total is the best opening 36 holes in school history.

Kent State leads with 555, four ahead of Charlotte with 559. LSU (576) is third followed closely by Maryland (577) and Chattanooga (578). Tulane (584), Augusta (585), Tennessee (589), Mercer (593) and Middle Tennessee (595) round out the top 10. Kent’s Pimnipa Panthong is the individual leader at 6 under (136).

Would Foreign Teachers Make Better Instructors For Inner-City Students? - And Response

It seems a week doesn't go by, sometimes more in one week, without Roy or someone writing some coded messages denigrating inner-city schools and the students (using another code-hint hint) that attend inner-city schools. Which reminded me of something from decades ago about teachers from foreign countries perhaps making better instructors for inner city students. At least those ... (click for more)
