As the regular season comes to a close, the Lady Mocs triumph winning the last tournament to improving their rankings going into Conference.

The Lady Mocs lead the Argonauts Tournament going into the last day by two and ended the day beating Limestone College by one and Florida Tech College by three Coach Davis explained.

“It was Colleen Panosian and Emily Rymer who came in clutch the last round with a 74 and a 76, with Panosian birdieing her last two holes of the day,” Coach Davis stated.

According to the Florida Southern Website, Rymer had the best rounds of the tournament with a 72-75-76 bringing a second trophy of the tournament to the Moc’s winning individually by three.

The team said the course was very difficult and mentally exhausting, but they knew they had to fight through the conditions to come out on top.

Coach Davis explained the team was down a couple of strokes after the front nine, but then came back strong the final nine holes to win the tournament.

“This being my second collegiate win and also second team win of the season brings a lot of momentum and confidence for the team going into Conference and hopefully regionals,” Senior Rymer said.

Rymer said she plans to continue her golf career turning pro after she graduates in the summer and working on her game as much as possible to prepare for Q-school.

According to the team, Rymer has been a huge influence on everyone bringing support and helpful advice on and off the course.

“I knew I had a lot of shots to make up from the day before, so it was great motivation to turn around and contribute to the team,” Junior Panosian said.

The team added they were excited to see her come in with a low round to help the team score after a frustrating second round.

Panosian had the leading round of the tournament for the third round, gaining back 15 shots from the day before, Coach Davis stated.

According to the Mocs schedule on the Florida Southern website, they next play in Orlando for Conference which then determines if they make it to Regionals in Savannah, Georgia.

The Lady Mocs are currently in 11th place in their region and seventh in the Sunshine State Conference. To make it to regionals the team must stay in the top nine of the conference, Coach Davis explained.

The team said they are looking forward to the post season and to hopefully making it to regionals and then Nationals in Michigan.
