QUOTING HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL
“This is such a good golf course and it challenges you on every hole. As a group we struggled with our accuracy off the tee and that made it tough to score. Rachel had a really strong day and did a good job of taking care of her golf ball. We are looking forward to a strong finish tomorrow. The Hawks are due for a good team round.”
