WOMEN'S GOLF: Ex-Claremore standout Hocutt set to lead Lady 'Cats

CLAREMORE — The 2012-13 season of Hillcat women’s golf could be summed up with one word: Depth. The depth of the field of quality teams in tournaments on the Rogers State schedule this season and the depth of talent up and down the Hillcat roster this year.

Entering the fifth year of Hillcat Golf, coach Lynn Blevins has compiled the toughest test for his women’s squad in program history with a schedule that will challenge his young team. The Hillcat skipper pointed to the depth of the talented teams at the Hillcats scheduled tournaments for the 2013-14 slate.

“We are playing a lot harder schedule than we have played in the past,” said Blevins. “We usually finished middle of the pack and even won some. But now playing in Division II tournaments and 12 team fields, we could finish fifth or sixth and it be a really good tournament.”

The season begins September 16-17 at Lincoln Park Golf Course in Oklahoma City at the OCU Stars Fall Invitational before traveling to Amarillo, Texas for the West Texas A&M hosted Lady Buff Stampede at Tascosa Country Club the first Monday of October.

October 14-15 at Dallas National Golf Club the Hillcat will compete in the Dallas Baptist Invitational before wrapping up its four-tournament fall slate at the Arkansas-Monticello Fall Classic at The Greens at North Hills, October 21-22.

The RSU spring schedule spans from February to April, totaling six tournaments, with four trips to Texas. RSU stays in the state of Oklahoma for the Crimson Storm Invitational March 3-4. The season will come to a conclusion April 7-8 at the Natural State Invitational in Hebner Springs, Ark. at The Red Apple Inn & Country Club.

The depth of the Hillcats roster begins with senior Whitney Hocutt. Entering her fourth season with the Hillcats the Claremore, Okla. native holds career records for Low 54 Hole Total, Low 36 Hole Total, and Low Round Versus Par.
