BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"We had some pretty solid performances today. I thought we made some adjustments from the Cougar Open, but still lots to fix. We were in the mix for the team title until late when we had some bad rounds that cost us. Now we've got a few weeks to really dial in and fix the mistakes." --Head Coach Nate Yetzer

BACK ON THE MAT
Yetzer's team will be back in action Tuesday, December 10, at home with a dual meet against Southern Virginia University.
