AUBURN, Ala.

The No. 11 University of Tennessee Lady Vol golf team surged to its second tournament title victory with a third-day 285, which betters its first-day 289 total for second-lowest team round in program history, to defeat 10 out of the top-25 squads in the nation with a Derby best-ever 54-hole 871 (289-297-285). Freshman Violeta Retamoza also became the first Lady Vol to ever capture medallist honors twice in a season and also tied Katharina Larsson for the most tourney medals by a single golfer after defeating Auburn's Celeste Troche in a playoff. The Aguascalientes, Mexico native blew away the rest of the competition over the last two days with a pair of under-par rounds (70, 67) to come-from-behind after tying for 21st after the first round for a three-day 211 total (74-70-67), which is also the second-best 54-hole total in UT history.

"We're really excited about the victory." Head Coach Judi Pavon said. "It's the biggest win our program has ever had and to do it against the best teams in the country really showed a lot. We're going to work hard over the winter to hopefully do it again in the spring. Overall, it was a great day."

UT bettered second-place No. 7 Texas' 878 (294-294-290) by seven strokes, while No. 2 Arizona finished in third with an 882 (296-293-293). Rounding out the Top 5 were No. 1 Duke (294-299-290) and No. 3 Auburn (291-297-295) who tied for fourth with a pair of 883s. Arizona's Erica Blasberg finished with a third-place 214 (72-70-72), while Virada Nirapathpongporn of Duke came in fourth with a 215 (75-71-69). Florida's Whitney Code (73-71-72) and Texas' Perry Swenson (72-73-71) tied for fifth-place with a pair of 216s. Junior Mary Jan Fernandez (Henderson, Nev.) fired her second career-round in the 60s with a third-day 67 to finish with a 14th-place 222 (77-78-67), while team captain Jessica Shepley (Oakville, Ontario) and Golda Johansson (Lund, Sweden) tied for 15th place with a pair of 223s, (71-76-76) and (70-73-80), respectively. Junior Tai Perry (Unionville, Pa.) rounded out UT's fivesome with a 227 (74-78-75) to tie for 29th-place.

 

 

"I'm very proud of Violeta." Pavon said. "She's an unbelievably strong player both physically and mentally. Mary Jan also came through for us today. She was awesome and stayed calm throughout the day."

The Lady Vols knocked off the top seven teams in the country (No. 1 Duke, No. 2 Arizona, No. 3 Auburn, No. 4 Oklahoma State, No. 5 Vanderbilt, No. 6 Florida and No. 7 Texas) and a total of 10 of the Top 25 ranked schools in the nation (No. 9 Southern California, No. 12 Georgia and No. 20 South Carolina).

UT has the winter off and will open up its spring season Feb. 10-12, 2003 in Los Angeles, Calif., at the Regional Challenge hosted by The Ohio State University.
