"We had great weather today sunny 65 wind blowing 5-10mph great conditions for playing golf. Nate played really well today and has been putting a lot of hard work in and the results were there today. Big thing on the day was we need to continue to work on limiting the big number on a hole. We will get back at it tomorrow the women have a short turn around as Regionals will be play this coming Friday and Saturday." Said Coach Soper
