Coach Allen Tee’s Off: “Under the circumstance, and the golf course set up, I thought the team's final
round performance at Regionals was our best of the year. They really stepped it up when we needed it the most. If we can put together that type of intensity for four rounds at nationals, then I think we will have a chance to be in the hunt. That's our goal, to have a
chance to win as we make the turn during the final round. I am really proud of this team and the strides we have made this year. As a coach, I couldn't ask for a team that has had better chemistry than we've had
since day one. I still think our best golf is yet to come.”
