BATON ROUGE—The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team is tied for eighth total after 18 holes at the LSU Tiger Golf Classic. The Mocs and Kansas turned in matching 306s.
 
All five cards were within one stroke of each other. Kirsty Beckwith and Monica San Juan paced the squad with 4-over 76s with Rheagan Hall, Esme Hamilton and Maddy McDanel each adding 77s.
 
The Mocs got off to a tough start sitting at 5 over after three holes. The birdies came fast and furious from there. Chattanooga surged to the top of the leaderboard at 1 over at the turn.
 
The back nine was unkind. San Juan’s three birdies were the only red numbers on the board. The counters played the nine at 17 over to drift back into the tie for eighth.
 
No. 25 Campbell is the early leader at 291. The Camels have a three-shot advantage over No. 19 TCU in second. Campbell’s Emily Hawkins and Sabrina Igbal from the Horned Frogs are tied for the lead at 3 under.
