McLennan, UTC Mocs women's golf team set records in tournament win

UTC golfer Emily McLennan set a program record for lowest 54-hole tournament score in leading the Mocs to victory Tuesday at Chateau Elan in Braselton, Ga.

In less than 24 hours the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's golf team went from having a tournament washed out to receiving an invitation to play in another.

Three days later, the Mocs won - and did so in record-setting fashion.

UTC won the Fall Invitational at Chateau Elan Resort by shooting a 12-under-par 852 Monday and Tuesday, which beat Ole Miss by one stroke.

UTC senior Emily McClennan won medalist honors for herself and the team title for the Mocs by beating Ole Miss's Abby Newton with a par on the final hole of the tournament in Braselton, Ga. That gave her an 11-under-par 205 (68-68-69).

"They know that they all have individual tasks and they know that everything should come together," said UTC coach Colette Murray, whose team was scheduled to play in flooded Charleston, S.C.,
