“We got off to a poor start, then settled things down in the middle of the round and didn’t finish as strong as we should have,” Assistant Coach Randy Stuckey said. “Our attitude and effort were outstanding today no matter what we shot on each hole. Patience was excellent. With a good start tomorrow morning along with patience we will compete well.”
