Lady Vols finish third in Hawaii

The Tennessee women's golf team finished third at the Anuenue Spring Break Classic at The Bay Course in Maui, Hawaii.

The No. 19 Lady Vols shot 12-over-par 300 to finish at 28-over 892 and three shots back of winner Colorado at the two-day event featuring 14 teams.

California was a shot better for second.

UT was tied for third after rounds of 299 and 293 on Monday.

A.J. Newell of the Lady Vols shot 76 in the final round and tied for fourth, seven shots back at 5-over 221.

Sara Monberg (74) tied for eighth at 223, Erica Popson (76) tied for 15th at 226, Nathalie Mansson (77) and Chessey Thomas (78) tied for 18th at 227 and Kaitlyn Rohrback (80) tied for 23rd at 228.

Rowing: Tennessee's varsity 4, coxed by sophomore Courtney Fritts and including Kayla Lucier, Jennifer Bailey, Hilary Epes and Kaelyn Gibson, were named Conference USA's Boat of the Week.

It's the first time UT has received that honor.

The V4 won its race at Central Florida on Lake Pickett, crossing the finish line in 7 minutes, 59.4 seconds, more than 36 seconds ahead of UCF's second-place shell.

Women's Track: Annie Alexander is the SEC's outdoor co-women's field athlete of the week after sweeping the shot put and discus at the SEC/Big Ten Challenge.

In the discus, Alexander posted a top toss of 169 feet, 10 inches. The senior added a heave of 56-.5 in the shot put.

Soccer: The Lady Vols have added a game with Lipscomb on Thursday to the spring soccer schedule.

Game time is 7 p.m. at Regal Soccer Stadium.

"Spring games keep the team working," sophomore center back Allie Sirna told "It allows us to compete again against a lot of different teams and keeps the momentum going so that when we return after the summer and move into the fall we have not left off and we keep moving forward."

I love golf and I love women. But sending the women's golf team to Hawaii for a meaningless golf tournament? Really? How did they pay for it? From the tuition $ that I pay or did they have some very successful bake sales?

First of all, you probably don't pay it. Your parents do. So when you do, then you can get up on your hind legs and complain.....

I am the parent and I've been paying for my daughter's education at UT for the last 4 years and no student loans. So do I have the right to complain now?
