QUOTING COACH MENZEL
“Shannyn was very steady this week, great mentality and solid play from tee to green. Overall not our best this week but the effort was there all the way through the round today. Madison made a big come back and made 5 birdies late in her round which was good to see. We have to clean up the big numbers for us to be a competitive team”
The Hawkeyes return to action in October, traveling to Colorado to compete in the Ron Moore Intercollegiate from Oct. 7-9.
