BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"To say we started off slow was an understatement. We were six over as a team after two holes, but fought back and played very well today, proud of the guys. We were led by Hunter's 69, which was the low round of the day. We are right where we want to be going into the final round tomorrow." --Head Coach Erick Cox
Cox's team will close out play Tuesday, beginning at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday. The event is named in honor of former Bridgewater Director of Athletics Tom Kinder, whose brother Ted held the same role for 10+ years at Ferrum. The Panthers won team titles at the Tom Kinder Memorial in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
