Lady Vols Conclude Play at SEC Championship

April 21, 2013

Final Results

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee women's golf team concluded play at the 2013 SEC Women's Golf Championship, finishing ninth in a competitive field that featured seven teams in the GolfStat top-30 rankings.

The Lady Vols totaled 312-309-308=929 (+65) over the three-day tournament.

"Another day of being almost good," head coach Judi Pavon said. "We had three pretty good scores come in, but all week counted a high fourth score and that completely kept us out of the tournament and a decent finish."

Senior Sara Monberg earned her highest finish this spring as she tied for 19th with a three-day 231 (+15) card, leading UT at the event. Fellow senior Erica Popson followed in a tie for 23rd with a 232 (+16) total after a 4-over 76 score in Sunday's final round.

"Sara Monberg played well today and had a top-20 finish for the week, which was good considering she has struggled this spring," Pavon said. "After a tough first round, AJ Newell buckled down and played really solid the last two rounds."

Sophomore AJ Newell and junior Chessey Thomas finished the league event tied for 28th at 17-over 233. Newell fired UT's best score of the day as she carded a 3-over 75 mark.

Sophomore Daeun Song finished 70th with a 250 (+34) in her first SEC Championship appearance.

Alabama took the team title with a 35-over 899 total while the Crimson Tide's Stephanie Meadow won the conference's individual title with an even-par 216 card.

"We will be home for two weeks before the NCAA selections are made,' Pavon said. "Based on our ranking, it's pretty difficult to determine where we will be competing, so we will wait until the 29th to find out."

The NCAA Regional selection show will take place on Monday, April 29 at 9 p.m. ET. Auburn University, University of Oklahoma and Stanford University will host the east, central and west regions, respectively.
