"To start the day off it was a little wet, as the players got into their round the rain started, then we had about an hour delay due to lightening and then it just rained the rest of the day. Mentally we have to continue to stay in the moment and battle through the conditions, everyone is playing in them. It's good to see the guys playing well just need to get all 5 playing well at the same time. Talisa is playing well we just need to get some scores lower and drop that team score. Overall i think we had a good day 3 players medalled. I'm proud of this group and can't wait to see what the spring holds for us." said Coach Andy Soper.

The Lakers wrap up their fall season on October 11th when the Men will play the inaugural Beaver Cup against Buena Vista at Brooks Golf Club. This is a Ryder Cup format that the Men play. The Lakers have won the past two years.
