South Carolina Head Coach Kalen Harris
Overall, the team did a good job battling today and, obviously, Sarah and Justine were great today. Early on the conditions were good and scoreable, but to be honest, we struggled a little early. It got windy towards the back nine, and the rest of the field started coming back to us and we just hung in there. Katelyn and Ainoah had tough days, so our number four score was pretty high. The good news is we had a tough day overall, and we still have a lead. We’re in a good position entering the final day. I think we tried a little too hard today, so hopefully we can relax and have some fun tomorrow. If we do that, we have a great shot in coming away with a victory.
