Australian amateur Zac Stoltz will compete on the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga men's golf team beginning in the spring semester. Due to Australia's academic calendar, Stoltz could not compete for the Mocs during the fall season. He will join them as a freshman over winter break with the chance to compete or turn the entire academic year into a redshirt season. "He's grown up around his dad [Andre, who won on the PGA Tour in 2004], and he's been exposed to high-level golf his whole life," UTC coach Mark Guhne said. "The Chattanooga connection is that [Hixson resident] Dave Hill is his dad's agent." The father and son are currently paired in a threesome for the Australian Open.
* UTC's Corey Mock moved up one notch in the latest Amateur Wrestling News rankings, going from No. 6 to No. 5 at 165 pounds. Coming off a Navy Classic championship, Mock is 10-0 with three of the wins coming over top 15-ranked opponents. He has two pins, a technical fall and two major decisions. He also has been named Southern Conference Wrestler of the Week for the second time in three weeks. The Mocs' next competition is Dec. 15 in Atlanta against Purdue and then they'll open Southern Conference competition on Dec. 16 at home against Gardner-Webb.
