Ashley Rogers of Loyola University claimed individual honors at the Tennessee Wesleyan University Invitational with a 72-76 (148) 4 over-par performance concluding on Tuesday afternoon on Tennessee National Golf Course in Loudon, Tennessee.

 

Dalton State took team honors with a 313-341 (627) +51 squad performance.

 

Maryville College finished ninth with a 388-409 (797) +221 effort.

 

Sophomore Katelyn Witucki capped another historic performance on Tuesday for the Scots. The Seymour, Tennessee native improved five strokes on the second day of the tournament with an 81 that included a trio of birdies. Witucki finished the tournament in 21st place following an 86-81 (167) +23 performance.

 

Her 19th career birdie surpasses Sarah Edmiston who deposited 17 career birdies from 2010-2013.

 

Witucki's round of 81 is also the fifth lowest round in school history. Her +23 is the second-lowest 36-hole versus par score in MC's nine years of varsity golf while her 167 is the third lowest 36-hole score in school history.

 

"It was great seeing Katelyn improve her second round and continue to add to her career birdie standard," stated Head Women's Golf Coach Jason Henderson.

 

Four additional Scots finished the challenging course. Elaina Davis finished 48th with a 94-111 (205). Bailee Powell finished 50th with a 105-107 (212). Hannah Doherty and Kaysi Royston each finished 51st and 53rd respectively with a 103-110 (213) and a 125-127 (252).

 

The Scots will now prepare for the Piedmont Spring Invitational in Clarksville, Georgia at the Orchard Country Club on April 1-2.
