Mocs Women’s Golf Headed to Notre Dame for NCAA Regionals
Freshman Jordan Britt shot -2 70 in the final round of the SoCon Championship.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. --- The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's golf team is heading to Notre Dame, Ind., for the NCAA Central Regional at Warren Golf Course the NCAA announced Monday.  This is the third straight year the team has qualified for regionals.

"We worked very hard for this opportunity," said head coach Colette Murray.  "This program is not built on being happy to make regionals.  Making the finals is our goal.  That's what has mattered from day one."

Regional play starts Thursday, May 5.  The three-day, 54-hole event closes on Saturday, May 7.  There are 24 teams and six individuals playing at each of the three regional sites.  The top eight teams and two individuals from non-advancing teams move on to the finals at Traditions Golf Club in College Station, Texas, May 17-20.

Chattanooga is ranked No. 30 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index and No. 35 by Golfstat.  UTC received the 12th-seed in the regional.

The Mocs won four times in 2010-11 tying its season record from the inaugural season of 2007-08.  Seniors Christine Wolf (Igls, Austria) and Emma de Groot (Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia) won individual titles as well.  Wolf set school and tournament records in capturing medalist honors shooting seven-under par at the JMU/Eagle Landing Invitational, while de Groot won for the sixth time in her career as medalist at the Southern Conference Championship last week leading Chattanooga to a 30-shot victory.

de Groot earned SoCon Golfer of the Year honors and was joined on the All-SoCon team by Wolf and junior Maria Juliana Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia).  Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.), Yushira Budhram (Johannesburg, South Africa) and Marion Duvernay (Publier, France) made the all-freshman team, while Murray collected her second straight Coach of the Year award.

This is the program's fourth regional appearance, third as a team.  de Groot was an individual qualifier in 2007-08, while the Mocs have advanced each of the last three seasons.  The 2008-09 squad finished eighth in the Central Regional on the Scarlet Course at Ohio State to make their first finals appearance.

"It's exciting to play this kind of competition", added Murray.  "Emma, Christine and Maju have been there before, they know what it takes."
