BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"We bounced back as a team today and did 33 strokes better. We could have easily done 20 or more strokes better than that, but our short game was off all weekend. We have several weeks until our next tournament so we will continue working and keep getting better every day. For this group to go into the record books as posting the first women's team score is very special. I'm glad to be part of it and wouldn't ask for a different group to do it with. --Head Coach Erick Cox
