GABBING WITH GROBE
Quotes from head coach Matt Grobe:
On the team's first day of spring season:
"The team hit some good golf shots today but we struggled on the greens. I was really happy with the positive attitudes that everyone kept even though things weren't going our way. It really helped in the second round as they bounced back. Looking forward to tomorrow."
