BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Not our best effort today. We had way too many three-putts as a team and took several big numbers. If we can go out tomorrow and clean up these mistakes, I believe we can hit our team goal of scoring in the 300's." --Head Coach Erick Cox
Cox's women will tee it back up at Glenrochie CC Tuesday with a 8:00 a.m. shotgun start.
