Sibling Love On Lady Vols Golf

| No TrackBacks


It's all sisterly love between senior AJ Newell and freshman Anna Newell. The two finished right behind one another in the most recent tournament, the Cougar Classic. The Newell sisters are the newest pair of siblings to be a part of Lady Vols golf. Hannah and Emmie Pietila, sisters, started their careers last season. 

Lucia Polo of Lady Vols golf concluded the 2014 Women's World Amateur Championship in Japan this weekend. Polo was representing her home country of Guatemala.

In four rounds, Polo finished first in her pool of two others representing Guatemala. She had a final score of 294 (+6) after rounds of 71-73-74-76. She finished in a seven-way tie for 58th place, individually.

As a team, Guatemala finished 614 (+38) for 42nd place.
