-          The Lady Mocs are the first golf team in Chattanooga history to advance to the NCAA Division I Finals.  The team accomplished it in just the second season since re-establishing the program in 2007 after disbanding in the med-1980s.


-          The Lady Mocs were very consistent sitting in the top eight at the end of each round.  UTC was tied for seventh after round one, and in eighth place following round two before finishing eighth.


-          While its second round score of 299 was the seventh best score of the day, much like the 303 in round one, Chattanooga’s final round 320 in harsh wind conditions ranked 11th.


-          Weather was not ideal on any of the four days including the practice round.  Heavy rain during Wednesday’s practice round was followed by continued wet conditions in the first two rounds.  That was nothing compared to the wind during Saturday’s final round with reported gust up to 40 miles per hour.


-          The Lady Mocs were impressive making the finals after a No. 16 seed in the regional.  Higher ranked teams Chattanooga beat (# of strokes):  No. 15 Louisville (10), No. 18 Kent State (12), No. 26 Stanford (24), No. 33 Georgia State (4), No. 32 Notre Dame (37), No. 35 N.C. State (32), No. 40 Washington (5) and No. 44 Kentucky (13).


-          Every player counted at least two rounds.  Emma de Groot and Christine Wolf each counted all three rounds.


-          Maria Salinas’ second 72 (E) was the low round for the Lady Mocs.


-          Christine Wolf played remarkably consistent with rounds of 76, 77 and 78.


-          Wolf’s 78 and de Groot and Maria Juliana Loza’s 79s during the extreme wind in the final round were remarkable.  The average score in round three was 81.97.


-          The average score for the tournament was 78.97.  Wolf (77.0), de Groot (77.0), Duf (77.67) and Salinas (78.67) each bested the tournament’s average round, while Maju Loza (79.00) barely missed matching it. Only six other teams could claim that feat.


-          de Groot finished the regional tied for 13th in pars with 34, tops for Chattanooga.  She led the Lady in par 5 scoring as well at one-under par (4.92) which tied for 11th overall.  Wolf was tied for 19th at even par (5.00).


-          Loza had the lone eagle on No. 16 (par 4).  It was one of only two eagles on par fours all week and both came in the second round.  Loza’s eagle was the only eagle by UTC during the week.


-          Duf made the most birdies for the Lady Mocs with six.


-          Duf also made the fewest bogeys for Chattanooga with 13.


-          Wolf and de Groot made the fewest double bogeys for Chattanooga with just one each.


-          de Groot was even par or better on nine holes for the three rounds.  Duf was second with seven holes at par or better for the week.  Wolf played No. 9 (par 4) and 14 (par 5) at two-under par each.
