RECAP: Hortian, Healey Lead Women’s Golf in Finish at Chattanooga Classic

CHATTANOOGA—The Chattanooga Mocs women’s golf team completed its own Chattanooga Classic with 307 Tuesday at Council Fire Golf Club. That gives the squad a total of 919.
The Mocs finished in 16th, one behind Old Dominion in 15th. Indiana was 14 behind the hometown lasses with Jacksonville another eight behind the Hoosiers. Carolina Hortian and Kera Healey carded 73s to lead the way. Dorota Zalewska added 77, while Megan Docherty chipped in 84.
Zalewska claimed yet another top 20 tying for 18th overall with 219. Healey was next at 226 with Hortian close behind with 228. Docherty and Isabela Yu Lee, who played as an individual, added 246s to the ledge with Nieves Martin rounding out the six totals with 264.
SMU set records in pulling away with the team titles. Today’s 11-under 277 is two better than UTSA’s 279 record set last season adding on to yesterday’s new 36-hole mark of 573 (-3). That means the Mustangs shattered the 54-hole record by 19 shots with 14-under 850. It also meant a 20-stroke win over Xavier in second, although they didn’t leave empty-handed.
The Muskateers’ Emma McMyler held off a late charge for medalist honors tying 2022 champion Anne Chen’s (Duke) scoring mark of 207 (-9). That charge came in the form of SMU’s Michelle Zhang’s 8-under 64, yet another new tourney standard.
The Mocs return to action in two weeks at the Southern Conference Championships. This year’s event returns to an old haunt, Moss Creek Golf Course in Hilton Head, S.C. The 3-day, 54-hole event is April 6-18. Full results, live scoring and pairings, when available, can be found on’s women’s golf schedule page.
