I am pleased we got our freshmen some competition experience today.  They both had some really good stretches and they continue to show a lot of growth. I am very pleased with how strong Sarah came out in her morning round.  She played 27 really solid holes. As a team we are going to get back to work and finish strong tomorrow.  We will learn from a few of our big holes today.”
