QUOTING HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL
“We are looking forward to working on what we learned this week. We have to come out stronger this next week in Tucson. Morgan had a solid week and I am happy for her that she broke her individual 54-hole scoring record. I know she feels like she left some shots out there, but I think overall it was a good start for her.”
The Hawkeyes travel to Tucson, Arizona, to compete in the Arizona Wildcat Invitational on March 5-6.
