- Emily McLennan leads the team in scoring average (76.00). She has been very consistent throughout the season also pacing the Mocs in par 4 scoring (4.29), par 5 scoring (5.08), top 10’s (3), top 5’s (2) and birdies (50). She is also the only student-athlete to count in all 24 teams rounds.

She has had the low UTC tally in three of the last four events tying for 16th at the Central District Invitational, tying for 28th last week at the SunTrust Gator Women’s Invitational and tying for 43rd at the Briar’s Creek Invite. Tied for season-high on the team for pars in a round (15 - SunTrust Gator) with Agathe Sauzon.

- Sauzon has made quite an impression joining the program in January. She earned a spot in the lineup in the spring’s second event and hasn’t looked back.

- Jordan Britt leads the Mocs in par or better rounds with two in 2012-13. Both came in the fall as her season-low 71 in the final round of the Lady Paladin Invitational almost netted her second win as she tied for second at plus five (221). She is also tops on the team in fewest other per round (0.57).
