Better score in the afternoon round today, more representative of how we can play,” Head Coach Scott Moe said. “It was nice to see Sam battle back with a 70 in the afternoon around. We will improve on having better starts to our rounds and not making bad bogeys out of the gates. Congrats to Teddy and JR for having great weekends. We look forward to preparing for the St. John’s event next weekend.” 

The Gusties compete next weekend at the Saint John’s Invitational.
