Head coach Jason Retzlaff had this to say about his team.

"I was very encouraged by what we showed today in our first tournament.  It was a great event for us to be in against some outstanding competition with many experienced players.  Hunter Moen had a wonderful college debut leading the way for us.  He showed great poise throughout the day and putted the ball extremely well.  I am excited about the depth of this team and it showed today with 7 players at 80 or under. It should be a fun Fall watching this team progress."
