Quotables from Coach Emily Kuhfeld
"We played about 45 holes in which we did a really good job managing the pins and managing ourselves out there. The last 9 were a struggle, but the team fought and gave their all. A lot of lessons learned this week, and we have some time together to continue building our short games and course management skills heading into the Sun Belt Championship."
