Another week, another honor for Chattanooga Mocs senior Dorota Zalewska. Zalewska earned Southern Conference Golfer of the Week for the second week in a row after leading the women’s golf team to a strong finish at the Mason Rudolph Championships.
The native of Poland shot 7 under for her 54 holes at the Vanderbilt Legends Club North Course. She deposited 13 birdies and played par or better on 49 holes. Her performance included three under par tallies of 70, 68 and 71.
The 68 was her fifth card under 70 this season doubling her career total to 10 which ties Emily McLennan’s (2013-16) program record.
She also became the third Moc all-time to record 30 par or better rounds. Her 30 are just two shy of UTC Hall of Famer Emma de Groot’s (2008-11) 32.
“Dori has been playing really terrific golf for awhile now,” Coach Colette Murry shared. “She has hefty goals and is determined to leaver her mark on our program. I truly believe we’ve only seen a wee glimpse of what she’s capable of on the course.”
This is the fifth such honor in Zalewska’s career. She earned it three times in 2021-22 and now twice in the first month of the 2022-23 campaign. She’s just the fourth student-athlete in SoCon history to win it five or more times joining de Groot (6), Natalie Srinivasan of Furman (7) and Hee Ying Loy from ETSU (5).
The Mocs are off until October 7-9. Zalewska and squad head west to the Ron Moore Invitational at the University of Denver Golf Course in Denver, Colo.
