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


CLAREMORE — Blevins spoke of his lone senior, “Whitney, who is a senior, her leadership is really, really good.”

Junior Cecilie Nordahl joins Hocutt as a returner as do sophomores Chelsea Burney, Kelsey Stuever and Raquel Trevino. Nordahl was third on the team as a sophomore with a versus par average of 11.67 a season ago.

“Kelsey and Chelsea both provide a solid core of what I think we need to do to continue as a program,” the Hillcat head coach said of Stuever and Burney.

Stuever played in all ten tournaments for the Hillcats as a freshman averaging a versus par score of 15.55. Burney saw action in eight tournaments, averaging a versus par score of 15.19 in her freshman season on the Hill.

“Raquel has the ability to be our best player,” Blevins said of the Houston, Texas native. “I feel good about the core coming back, because it’s something we can build on.”

Trevino will look to build upon a freshman season that saw her post a team best average of 81.25 for a versus par average of 9.45. She tallied a team best finish at the Diffee Ford Lincoln Invitational tying for fourth with an 83-79—162 finish helping the Hillcats to its lone team title of 2012-13.

Joining the five Hillcat returners are four newcomers that have coach Blevins excited not only for the upcoming season but also for the future.

“I’m excited about what we have coming in and I think they have really bought into what it takes to succeed,” said Blevins of the recruiting class.

Michelle Tierney made the journey from Ireland to join the Hillcats in 2013. As a junior she helped the province of Munster panel capture the Irish Interprovincials Championship for the first time in 25 years.

 “The freshman from Ireland, Michelle Tierney, is a real pleasant surprise. I didn’t get to see her in person and only saw her swing on video,” said Blevins. “Her work ethic, commitment, and attitude are better than I ever expected. She is ready to compete at this level.”
