TOP QUOTE
"This was obviously a disappointing week for us as a team," fourth-year head coach Mike McGraw said. "We did have a few bright spots as Garrett May placed 10th despite struggling with his ball-striking, and both Matthew Perrine and Braden Bailey shot rounds of 67. We have a lot of work to do before our next event."
