LINCOLN, Neb.The University of Tennessee Lady Vol golf team concluded the 2003 NCAA Central Regional in Lincoln, Neb., with an 18th-place finish. UT carded a 948 (321-306-321) for the tournament to finish 14 shots shy of the top eight NCAA Championship qualifying squads.

Kent State, Texas, Purdue, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Florida and Tulsa move on to West Lafayette, Ind., for the culminating event of the season, while Kansas State's Christine Boucher and Texas A&M's Nicole Melton earned berths at the championship as unattached players. Individually, Wisconsin's Katie Connelly fired a 217 (71-70-76) to claim the NCAA Central Regional medal.

Freshman Violeta Retamoza (Aguascalientes, Mexico) led the orange-clad golfers with a 231 (82-74-75) to tie for 24th, while team captain Jessica Shepley (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) carded a 47th-place tying 238 (78-78-82). Junior Tai Perry (Unionville, Pa.) tied for 59th-place with a 240 (78-76-86), while classmate Mary Jan Fernandez (Henderson, Nev.) carded a 243 (84-81-78) to tie for 72nd-place.
