Isabella Loza and Agathe Sauzon tied for team-low honors with twin 72s today.
Mocs Shoot 5th-Best Final Round to End Up 11th

GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) and Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) paced a season-best effort today with two-over par 72s in the final round of the SunTrust Gator Women's Invitational. The Chattanooga Mocs' 292 is its 18-hole low for the season and provided it them an 11th-place finish at 901 on Mark Bostick Golf Course at the University of Florida.

The 292 is not only a season-best, but it is the lowest UTC has shot since the final round of the 2011 Southern Conference Championship. That 292 clinched a run-away defense of the league title that the Mocs have captured the last three seasons in a row.

Loza's 72 is her season-best round, while Sauzon ties her low from Friday's opening round. Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) and Marion Duvernay (Publier, France) each carded four-over par 74s, while Mette Kryger (Nivaa, Denmark) had the drop score with a 76.

Loza tied for 28th to lead the Mocs with a 223. Keeping with the spirit of the day, it's her season-low mark. Sauzon ended up one stroke behind her at 224, while McLennan was just two more shots off the pace at 226.

No. 3 Alabama held on for the win shooting 286 today, 865 for the 54 holes. The Crimson Tide topped No. 4 Oklahoma by three and tourney host No. 5 Florida by five. No. 21 Oklahoma State and No. 15 Virginia tied for fourth at 877, 12 shots off the pace.

Oklahoma's Chirapat Jao-Javanil's had a one-under 69 today to claim a five-shot win for medalist honors. Her 206 total included a consistent slate of 69, 68 and 69. Portland Rosen of Virginia was runner-up at one over.

The Mocs closed strong today playing minus two on its counting cards in the final three holes. Sauzon holed out for eagle on 10, while McLennan birdied the par five 12th, her final hole after a shotgun start to the day.

The strong close got the Chattanooga squad within reach of some of the top competition which made the trek to Gator-land. The Mocs ended up just four strokes shy of No. 18 Baylor (897) in 10th and nine shots behind No. 6 North Carolina (892) and Mississippi State ( 892) which tied for eighth.
