QUOTING COACH ANDERSON — “We are a little anxious to go out and start playing again. We’ve mainly focused on getting mentally prepared to play and hoping to keep a conservative gameplan. This looks like it will be a shorter course but also tight. We played well in the fall and are hoping to start off strong this spring.”
