Thoughts from Head Coach Julie Wagner:
"The team did an exceptional job of playing in the weather conditions. We did not improve by as much as we typically like to from day to day, but play was steady and we did not fall out of position. We lost a lot of strokes to putting. The team has learned how important it is to reach that next level of play so we get paired with teams that will push us to play harder."
"It has been a great year for the team with records being broken so many times as a coach I just love the extra effort these ladies are putting in at the course. They want to improve and it shows."
The IU Kokomo Men's and Women's golf teams will conclude their 2017 Fall Season with the IU Kokomo Fall Invite at Wildcat Creek Golf Course from October 13-14 beginning at 12:30 pm each day.
