"I rise today to honor an outstanding student athlete from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Competing at the U.S. Amateur Championship in Colorado, UTC student Steven Fox came from behind to win the first USGA Championship for the University of Tennessee Chattanooga.
"Down by two holes on the par 5 17th hole, Steven made a clutch birdie and managed to make a great par on the final hole, putting the match into sudden death after 36 grueling holes. At the first playoff hole Steven sunk a critical 18 foot putt to secure his victory. Steven's victory is an inspiration to the entire UTC community and indeed to all Tennesseans.
"No mention of this victory is complete without mentioning the great UTC golf team, which has achieved national success under the leadership of Coach Mark Guhne. Thanks to his hard work, and the support of Former Athletic Director Steve Sloan and Chancellor Roger Brown, UTC qualified for this past year's NCAA championship in Los Angeles.
"On behalf of all East Tennesseans, I extend my congratulations to Steven Fox, and I look forward to watching him roam the fairways at Augusta National soon. I also look forward to many future successes at UTC. GO MOCS!!
"I yield back."
