Quote

Head Coach Colleen Cashman-McSween: "Unfortunately, this weekend's tournament didn't go as well as we were hoping. It seemed like we never found our groove on the very large greens that just resulted in too many three-putts. This entire season we have been making a lot of birdies, but when we don't do that to help balance out the mistakes, the scores just aren't there. We will take this week to work on the mistakes and gain some confidence and then get right back at it next weekend on a new course in the Brown event."
