Mocs Head to Florida for Spring Break Events

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- The Chattanooga Mocs are on Spring Break starting this weekend which means a trip to Florida. For the women's golf team, it is an opportunity to get in 108 holes of competition. It starts Friday, March 8, at the JMU Eagle Landing Invitational in Orange Park, Fla., just outside Jacksonville.

UTC is one of 17 teams in the field in an event it knows quite well. This is the fifth straight visit to the event. Since it is an odd year, mark the Mocs down as the favorite. Head Coach Colette Murray's squads won in 2009 and 2011.

It is a very evenly-matched field invading Eagle Landing Golf Club. There are two top 50 teams and 11 total in the top 100 vying for the title. Chattanooga checks in at No 67 on Golfstat and No. 69 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. Campbell (36) and Mississippi State (42) are the top-ranked targets for the Mocs.

The UTC lineup features junior Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.), sophomores Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) and Mette Kryger (Nivaa, Denmark), along with freshmen Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) and Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia). Junior Marion Duvernay (Publier, France) and sophomore Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada) are playing as individuals.

The Mocs tee off of No. 1 Friday beginning at 9:36 p.m., paired with UNCW and Elon. Live scoring is linked above and on the women's golf schedule page on GoMocs.com. Follow @UTCmocsGolf on Twitter for updates from the course.
