SPARTANBURG, S.C. --- Chattanooga Mocs sophomore Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) was named the Southern Conference Golfer of the Month for April the league office announced today. It is Britt's first in-season honor.
Jordan captured her first collegiate title winning the SoCon Championship with a 54-hole total of 222. She led the Mocs to their third straight team crown at the difficult Moss Creek North Course topping among others, the 32nd-ranked player in the country Fanny Cnops of UNCG.
Britt shot rounds of 77, 71 and 74 in winning by three over Cnops and by five over teammate Maria Juliana Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) in third. She tallied a season-high 11 birdies in grabbing the win after finishing as runner-up the year prior.
It was a clean sweep for the UTC golf teams at this season's golf championships as the men won the team title, while Stephan Jaeger (Munich, Germany) was the medalist. That marks just the third time in SoCon history that one school captured all four titles with Furman turning the trick in 1997 and 2004.
Britt and the Mocs travel to State College, Pa., next week for the NCAA East Regional. The event is slated for the Penn State Golf Courses Blue. It begins on Thursday, May 10, and ends Saturday, May 12.
