McLennan, Mocs Lead After 18 Holes at SoCon Championship

HILTON HEAD, S.C. --- Freshman Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) shot 72 (E) today for a share of the first round lead at the Southern Conference Championship at Moss Creek Golf Club. Her 72 paced a Chattanooga Mocs first round 297 effort that gives UTC a five-shot cushion heading into Monday.

Since the tourney moved to Moss Creek four years ago, there have been five sub-300 rounds with four belonging to Chattanooga. The 297 is the best first round tally since 2008 when Furman shot 294 at the Links at Stono Ferry in Hollywood, S.C. UTC closed its 2011 30-stroke triumph with the record round of 292 (+4).

McLennan had two birdies, 14 pars and two bogeys on her card playing beautifully over the difficult Moss Creek North Course called the Devil’s Elbow. She and Elon’s Sunna Vidisdottir hold a one-stroke lead over Valentina Romero in third at 73.

Three Mocs are tied for fifth at three-over par 75. Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada) and Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) are all knotted at plus three with three others. Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) is tied for 15th at plus five (77).

UTC leads Furman by five with the Paladins shooting 302. College of Charleston is third at 305, while Samford is in fourth at 312.

Monday’s second round starts at 10:30 a.m., for the Mocs. The squad is paired with Furman and Charleston. Loza leads the way followed by Campbell (10:40). Sauzon (10:50), Britt (11:00) and McLennan (11:10). Live scoring is linked above and on the women’s golf schedule page on GoMocs.com. Follow @UTCmocsGolf on Twitter for updates from the tournament.
