Coach Colleen Cashman-McSween: "We are very lucky to have had the opportunity to compete in the Reynolds Lake Oconee Invitational hosted by Mercer this past weekend against some great teams. We don’t generally start our Spring season in February, so it was questionable whether we would be at our peak performance yet. Overall though, I was pleased with the play of each of the players, as they all had great nine-hole scores but had trouble putting the 18-hole scores together. It was a little tough to find a rhythm with the format of 27 holes each day, and the fact it took nine hours to play those 27 holes on Day 1. As we preached all Fall, we have to eliminate the big numbers, and unfortunately we made too many of them. That was the difference in improving on our finish. However, it was a great first trip out to start the season, and we also enjoyed some Southern hospitality while staying at Coach’s brothers lake house right in the Reynolds development. From start to finish, I think we had a lot of fun and really learned a lot about where our games are and what we need to continue to work on this Spring."
The UAlbany Golf team will compete at the Babs Steffens Hatter Collegiate on Sunday, March 24.
