"So the fact that we played as well as we did today doesn’t surprise me. But just how well we played breaking three different records throughout the day was incredible! As a team we made 18 birdies and 1 eagle! We have been stressing pat 5 scoring average to start this season and we shot an amazing 10 under on them today. I’m very proud of Madison playing so well in her first collegiate round and Megan for shooting her best score ever.We are looking forward to the final round tomorrow and hopefully keeping the strong play going!"
