HEAD COACH
COLETTE MURRAY (Jacksonville State '04) is in her fifth year as a head coach, all at Chattanooga.  She began a program from scratch that had been discontinued in the 1980's.  The Mocs have 12 team titles with nine medalists under her watch. That includes the last three SoCon team titles and two SoCon individual crowns. She has won two SoCon Coach of the Year awards (2010, 2011).

LAST TIME OUT
Chattanooga finished 19th at the NCAA East Regional on Penn State Blue Course. Maria Juliana Loza (Bucaramanga, Colombia) tied for 19th shooting five-over par 221. She fired rounds of 73, 72 and 76.

The 2012-13 is next on UTC's horizon.

NOTES

  • The Mocs completed their fifth postseason appearance in five years of the program at the NCAA East Regional. The last four years has been as a team, while Emma de Groot (2008-11) qualified as an individual in 2008.
  • Jordan Britt (Chattanooga, Tenn.) tied Christine Wolf's (2008-11) NCAA postseason program record with her 70 (-2) in the final round of the East Regional. Wolf shot hers in the second round of the 2010 East Regional at Ironwood Country Club in Greenville, N.C. Her five birdies tied her season-best total and was the second-best round in a regional behind de Groot's six in 2010.
  • Loza shot a career postseason-best 221 (+5) at the NCAA East Regional. That 54-hole total is second only to de Groot's 220 (+4) in 2010 (Ironwood C.C., Greenville, N.C.).
  • Loza's second-round 72 tied her NCAA postseason personal best. She shot 72 in her final round last year vaulting into a playoff for the final individual advancing spot at the Central Regional.
  • Loza's tie for 19th is the fourth top 20 in Mocs women's golf history in NCAA tourneys. She has two including her tie for eighth at Notre Dame last season. de Groot (T17 - 2008 East Regional) and Wolf (T18 - 2011 Central Regional) have the other two.
  • Loza's 2011 top 10 is the best finish by a Mocs women's golfer in NCAA postseason play. She was named All-Central Regional after tying for eighth at the 2011 Central Regional at Notre Dame's Warren Golf Course. She birdied four of her last six holes.
  • Sophomores Britt and Marion Duvernay (Publier, France) improved on their freshman marks in NCAA Regional Play. The duo finished tied for 46th and tied for 76th after tying for 112th and 89th, respectively, in 2011.
  • Britt improved 20 shots in 2012 (225) compared to 2011 (245). Duvernay made sliced 10 shots from 240 to 230. Both student-athletes shot the three lowest rounds of their brief postseason careers.
  • Duvernay played the par 3s and par 5s at -1 at the East Regional.

  • Loza completed an amazing three-year run at the SoCon Championship at Moss Creek (Hilton Head). Her third-place finish was her third straight top five in the event including tying for fifth in 2011 and claiming fourth in 2010.
  • The Mocs had four student-athletes in the top 15 at the SoCon Championship. Duvernay and Mette Kryger (Nivaa, Denmark) tied for 14th.
  • Britt made her first All-SoCon team after being an All-Freshman selection in 2011. Kryger was named to the All-Freshman squad this year.
  • Britt's 11 birdies at the SoCon Championship is not only a season high for a Mocs, but it ties her career best (2010 Landfall Tradition).
  • Loza's 40 pars at the SoCon Championship is a season high as well for UTC.
  • Britt, Loza and Duvernay did not record a score high than bogey at the SoCon Championship.
  • Britt shot a career-best 220 (+4) at the JMU Eagle Landing Invitational. She fired rounds of 70, 74 and 76. The 70 tied her season-low as she tied for 10th, her second career top 10. The previous was her runner-up finish at the 2011 Southern Conference Championship.
  • Duvernay tied her career-best 54-hole total with her 221 at the Knights & Pirates Invite. She shot 76, 70 and 75 to finish tied for ninth. It was her second top 10 of 2011-12 and the 70 tied for her career-best 18. The 220 was the low 54-hole total of the season for the Mocs.
  • Duvernay's tie for fifth at the season opener, Golfweek Conference Challenge, was the best finish by a Moc in the fall. She shot five-over par 221 with rounds of 72, 77 and 72.
  • Loza's 221 at the NCAA East Regional matched Duvernay's two 221 efforts tying for second-best 54-hole total behind Britt's 220. Britt had a 221 as well at the Tar Heel Invite.
  • Sophomore Sophie Weilguni (Langenlois, Austria) joined the team in January. She played as an individual on Kiawah Island finishing tied for 59th at 233 (+17), the team's third-best result. She has played as a counting team member ever since.
  • Kryger closed strong at Eagle Landing tallying her first par or better round as a collegian. The 71 (-1) over the final 18 holes bettered her prior low round of 73 done multiple times. The highlight of the round came from a fairway bunker on the par four ninth hole. From 145 yards out and the wind in her face, Kryger holed out with a five iron for her second eagle of the season.
  • Kryger played in one of the top international amateur events in November. She was selected to represent Denmark at the Spirit International at Whispering Pines Golf Club in Trinity, Texas. The 72-hole competition featured 80 female and male golfers from 20 invited countries each year. Each nation selects two women and two men to represent it at the event. Kryger helped lead the Danish squad to an eighth-place finish at 12-under par in combined totals, and a tie for seventh on the women's side at four under with Sara Monberg (Tennessee) Kryger tied for seventh in birdies scored with nine.
  • Britt and Duvernay have the low round of the season for the Mocs with 70s. Britt did it three times, while Duvernay recorded it twice.
  • Duvernay posted a career-high five birdies on her card in her two-under par 70 at the Tar Heel Invite.
  • Loza missed her first collegiate even since joining the program in the fall of 2008 at the Tar Heel Invitational due to an elbow injury.
  • The Mocs return three starters from last year's SoCon Championship squad which tied the school record with four wins. All-SoCon and All-NCAA Central Regional Maju Loza is back for her final season joined by SoCon All-Freshman performers Britt and Duvernay.
  • Kryger entered UTC with impressive credentials. She had two top 10s in 2011 after finishing as runner-up in the 2010 Royal Tour Championship with four top 10s overall. She has represented Denmark in several team competitions.
  • Britt had good results over the summer. She finished in the semifinals of the Tennessee Amateur, quarterfinals of the Southern Women's Amateur and was 10th in the Golf Capital of Tennessee Women's Open.
  • Duvernay won the 2011 Yves Caillol Cup over the summer shooting 219 (+3) and finished second in the Championnat de Leman.
  • Chattanooga's women's golf team ranked as one of the smartest in the nation last year, No. 13 among NCAA DI universities with a 3.649 cumulative grade point average. It includes four returning NGCA Scholar All-Americans in Loza, Britt, Yushira Budhram and Duvernay.
  • The five Mocs come from five different countries: Britt (American), Duvernay (French), Weilguni (Austrian), Kryger (Danish) and Loza (Colombian). The signees for 2012-13 are Isabella Loza (Colombia), Emily McLennan (Australia) and Porsche Campbell (Canada).
