Head Coach Matt Grobe
“We played a little better. We got off to a great start but we just couldn’t keep it going. We have really struggled to finish off good rounds this fall. That is something we are going to have to work on this off season. I was really proud of the effort this week. I didn’t feel like we were playing our best golf but the guys gave everything they could. We have some great kids on this team and they are a blast to coach. I can’t wait to head to Pinehurst in March and watch them all compete again.”
