COMMENTS FROM COACHING STAFF
“Never did I think we would break 300 in both rounds in a tournament, break a program scoring record and not win. This week was very exciting and really showcased the talent that we have and the positive direction the program is going,” said head coach Colleen Cashman-McSween.
“Annie and Helga played four stellar rounds and really led the team. But overall, this weekend was truly a team effort and and I'm so proud of everyone. Shooting all 10 scores in the 70's is quite a feat. It was fun to watch and I really am excited for the future and what is to come,” said Cashman-McSween.
