Head Coach Matt Grobe
”I’m really happy with the way the team fought back today. We got off to a great start but didn’t finish the first round as strong. It was good to see the guys bounce back and play well in the second round. Looking forward to watching the guys finish the second round in the morning and then playing the final round.”
