QUOTING HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL
“It was a really tough day for our team. We did not finish, and it is disappointing. I take full credit for our poor performance this week. We had three weeks to prepare and for whatever reason we were not ready. As a coach, I need to do a better job to get them ready. This team is better than this, and we need to bounce back and finish the fall with a strong showing in Atlanta.”
The Hawkeyes will travel to Atlanta, Georgia, for the Ladies Fall Collegiate on Oct. 27-29.
