The Lady Mocs golf team tees off Thursday in the NCAA West Regional.
They'll be on the Tumble Creek Course some 80-miles south of Seattle.
UTC will try to string together three good rounds to advance to the NCAA Championships.
The UTC women are making their 7th straight appearance in the NCAA Regionals. Head coach Colette Murray hopes she never takes that streak for granted.
"I saw a big write up about Kansas. This is the first time they have ever gotten regionals. I didn't realize that. And I realized. Not that I have taken it for granted, but it is a big deal."
And it appears the Lady Mocs are rounding into form, just in time for the post-season.
Said golfer Emily McLennan, "We have a had a rough season, but we have really come back these past few tournaments."
Added Murray,"I feel like this is the best team I have had going to the regional championships."
UTC gets only one practice round on the Tumble Creek course.
But at least technology will help the team get a better feel for a course they've never seen before.
Said golfer Jordan Britt,"Just Google Earth helps us in practice because we see all right, this course is going to be really hilly. We need to practice shots on a slope."
Chattanooga is seeded 20th out of 24 teams in the West Regional, and only the top eight advance to the N-C-A-A Championships.
Said Britt,"Well, I know we might not be everyone's pick to go to nationals, but 20th seed, one seed, eight seed. I don't think anyone really thinks about that going into it. We just know the top eight goes, so that's our goal."
Added Murray,"I don't know that there's that intimidation factor that we had those first few years. So yeah, we're just going to go out. We going to play the golf course, and if we beat the golf course, then we are doing okay."
