SPARTANBURG, S.C. --- University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior Emma de Groot (Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia) was honored Wednesday as the Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week by the league office.  She is the seventh Moc to capture the award, the most among all SoCon schools, which is given weekly to student-athletes with a 3.2 or higher grade point average along with a significant athletic performance.

The Health and Human Performance major led Chattanooga's dominance of the 2011 Southern Conference Women's Golf Championship.  Her play spurred the Mocs to a 30-stroke win over their closest competition, College of Charleston.  The 54-hole total of 900 was the lowest total in the event since Western Carolina shot 894 at one of its local courses, Waynesville Golf and Country Club, in 2003.

de Groot won the individual title with a three-over par total of 219.  It marked her first SoCon Championship and sixth career win.  She was also named to her fourth All-SoCon team along with her first Golfer of the Year honor.

Chattanooga will learn the location of its NCAA Regional site on April 25.  The Mocs will be sent to one of three locations:  LPGA International (Daytona Beach, Fla.), Warren Golf Course (Notre Dame, Ind.) or Washington National Golf Club (Seattle, Wash.).  NCAA Regionals are slated for May 5-7.

The 30th NCAA Women's Golf Championship is May 18-21 at Traditions Golf Club in College Station, Texas.  In the previous three seasons of the Chattanooga women's golf team's existence, it has been to three regionals (2008 individual) and one final (2009).
