Quotables from Coach Carter Collins
“Overall, this was another good week for this team. We started and finished on holes 2-6 which is one of the toughest stretches in college golf.”
“Today, we shot the fifth-lowest team round, and Jake shot the second-lowest individual round on a golf course that played extremely hard.”
“I’m very proud of how we handled the tough stretch, tough course and persevered through it. This team continues to grow and get better each week, and I can’t wait to see where we are heading.”
“Next up is our home event and the best in college golf, the Schenkel.”
