GREENVILLE, N.C. --- Junior Christine Wolf led the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's golf team with a second round 70 (-2) to stand tied for 10th at the NCAA East Regional at Ironwood Country Club.  Chattanooga is in 14th overall after Friday's 301 gives it a two-day total of 594.

Wolf's 70 was aided by three birdies and 14 pars.  It ties her career-low, which she has carded twice before.  If the Mocs do not advance as a team, Wolf is in position to move on as an individual as the top eight teams and top two individuals not on advancing teams continue on to the NCAA Championship.

No. 3 Duke's 10-under par 278 propelled it to the lead at 568, two shots ahead of No. 18 Tennessee at 570.  No. 11 Pepperdine is third another shot back at 571.  The Mocs are 13 shots behind eighth-place Florida at 581.

Emma de Groot, the 37th-ranked player nationally, shot a three-over par 75 this afternoon.  She is tied for 35th at 146 and had two birdies and 12 pars on the day.  de Groot is four birdies shy of breaking the season high for birdies by a Mocs individual.

Maria Juliana Loza posted a 77 and is tied for 67th at 151.  Katie Taylor shot 79 to put her at 155, tied for 99th.

There is a quartet of ladies leading the event individually at five-under 139.  Katie Burnett (South Carolina), Kim Donovan (Duke), Danielle Kang (Pepperdine) and Rosalyn Kim (Texas Tech) make up the foursome in first with Donovan's 68 serving as the best round today among the four.

UTC tees off of the No. 1 tee at 12:41 p.m.  Taylor will lead off followed by Loza, de Groot and Wolf.  The Mocs are paired with No. 9 Wake Forest and East Carolina.
