From the Coach – Head Coach Natasha Vincent
“First off, super proud of Tania! This is her best collegiate finish. She left a lot of shots out on the course, so it’s exciting to know she has more in the tank. It’s always a good thing to finish above teams that are ranked ahead of you. The whole team left a lot of shots out there and we still had a solid team result. It was a big confidence booster for everyone. It was exciting to see Pear record a 73 and 74 in the first two rounds, as she made her collegiate debut. We are excited to see what we will do in the next tournament.”
