BURLINGTON, Iowa -- Paced by captain Stephan Jaeger in first place individually at 8-under-par 136, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team takes a two-stroke lead into the final round of the prestigius Golfweek Conference Challenge. The Mocs' Benni Weilguni matched Jaeger's 69 Monday and is tied for 12th at 144 with Chris Robb and Liam Johnston tied for 21st and 23rd at 147 and 148, and UTC is at 570 with Oklahoma State second at 572 and Arkansas third at 574 in the 15-team event.

  • GEORGETOWN, Ky. -- With all five players in the top eight, the Lee University women's golf team leads second-place Campbellsville 316-335 in the five-team Bluegrass Fall Classic. Lee's Geandra Almeida and Courtney Shelton are first and second at 76 and 78 with Madison Alexander and Kristin Bourg tied for fifth at 81 and Sloane Skinner at 83.

  • GREENEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Wesleyan's Cody Godfrey leads at 67 and his team is second to the host school after one round of the 12-team Tusculum Fall Classic at Link Hills Country Club. TWC's Wesley Farris is tied for fifth at 70, and Tyler Hughes shares 18th at 73.


  • Former UTC Lady Mocs standout Anneli Uys Morrison was the overall winner Sunday in the annual Komen Chattanooga Race for the Cure, and despite the crowded field, her time of 18 minutes, 7.57 seconds for the five kilometers wasn't far off her personal best of 17:49. "I've been a female overall winner before but I had never beat all the guys," she said. "It took me a while to get used to running in front with no running with me. In this race it's not really about the run but the cause -- beating cancer -- so it was really fun." The 24-year-old Morrison, who was married on July 22, is assisting UTC coach Bill Gautier this year before returning to her native Australia for physical therapy school. Ryan Shrum had the best men's time of 18:28.12, followed by Tom Sell in 18:42.42, and 21-year-old Marco Bianchini got the men's 19-39 award with his 18.54.70.

Catherine Brinkman scored at 18:10 and 22:02 for the Phoenix (3-4-3, 1-0-1), who also got two goals apiece from Shanon Foley and Marissa Russo and single scores by Kendall Stanley and Kim Gardner. Donna-Kay Henry had the other goal for UTC (5-3-1, 0-2), which got eight saves from Taylor Mangrum. Elon had advantages of 21-6 in shots and 12-3 in corner kicks.

  • Lee University's Ashley Aragona was the Southern States Athletic Conference women's soccer offensive player of the week and teammate Caroline Scales from Baylor School was the defensive honoree for their play in wins at Spring Hill and Mobile. Aragone, a sophomore from Waxhaw, N.C., had three goals and an assist in the two games for the NAIA's third-ranked Lady Flames, while junior Scales helped lead a defense that allowed only four total shots.
