Sauzon, Mocs Win 2013 SoCon Womenís Golf Championship

HILTON HEAD, S.C. --- The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team made it four in a row on Tuesday capturing the Southern Conference Women’s Golf Championship at Moss Creek Golf Club. UTC shot 298 in the final round for the six-stroke win over the surging Furman Paladins.

The Mocs total of 895 (+31) is the lowest in the five years the tourney has been played at Moss Creek’s Devil’s Elbow course. It is the second lowest all-time behind Western Carolina’s 894 in 2003 at Waynesville Golf and Country Club in Waynesville, N.C.

Sophomore Agathe Sauzon (Valence, France) led the way capturing the individual title in a playoff with Mary Chandler Bryan of College of Charleston. The two finished at two-over par 218 and headed to a 55th hole.

Both tee shots found the fairway with Bryan away. Her approach ended up 30 feet from the hole on the front of the green. Sauzon eyed the flag from 96 yards out and zoned in with her 52 degree wedge. She stuck her shot to within three feet of the pin.

Bryan rolled her putt up the slope toward the hole breaking just right with near perfect speed. With par in hand, she awaited Sauzon’s effort. With teammates, administrators and fans surrounding the green, she calmly dropped the birdie attempt in the heart of the hole for her first collegiate win. Sauzon shot two-over par 218 for the week and is plus three over her last 108 holes.

Emily McLennan (Queensland, Australia) recorded her third top five of the season, tying for fifth. She shot rounds of 72, 74 and 76 to shoot 222 (+6). She was key in the win today firing one-under par on the back nine today to help hold off the Paladins.

Isabella Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) missed a top 10 finish by just two shots. She carded a final round 75 (+3), which was matched by Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) who tied for 16th. Loza ended the tournament at 230, while Britt completed her 54 holes at 232. Porsche Campbell (Vancouver, Canada) closed out at 235.

Furman tied the tournament record for low round with a 291 today matching UNCG’s mark in round two. It ended up at 901 over the 54 holes, two ahead of the Spartans in third at 903. Charleston was fourth with a total of 921.

Head Coach Colette Murray was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year for the third time in the last four years. McLennan notched Freshman of the Year honors along with All-SoCon. She is the third Moc to claim the top freshman award joining Emma de Groot (2008) and Maria Salinas (2009).

McLennan is joined on the all-league team by Britt and Sauzon. It is the second straight year Britt has been named All-SoCon,
