    CHICAGO – The UIC women’s golf team began the 2013-14 season with a solid performance at the second annual Chi-Town Classic on Monday afternoon on their home course of Cog Hill in Lemont, Ill.  The Flames landed two golfers in the top-10 as junior Elizabeth Curtiss tied-for-first with a round of 78 and sophomore Caitlan Smollen placed tied-for-sixth with an 18-hole score of 80.  Curtiss lost a scorecard playoff to Chicago State’s Fernanda Valdes as the Cougars won the team title with score of 316.  Loyola claimed second, while UIC garnered third with tallies of 323 and 328, respectively.

    “We continue to make progress towards our goal of 320,” said head coach Carol Rhoades.  “We started off well in all facets of the game, but still struggle with a few bad holes every round.”

    Junior Ryann Gilley carded an 84 to tie-for-16th overall after shooting an impressive 40 on the front nine holes.  Junior Cherise Mangal and freshman Shannon Menard rounded out the UIC contingent with scores of 86 and 97, respectively.

    “We have spent the last week assessing our strengths and weakness,” said Rhodes.  The Chi-Town Classic confirmed to us that we need to re-focus our efforts.”
