Head Coach Joni Stephens
Thought on the Event: We struggled with our ball striking today, averaging eight greens in regulation as a team, and had too many big numbers again. We cannot compete when we only have one score in the 70's. Devanshi lead the team with her 77, coming back from her one double with a birdie on the next hole to keep her round going. If her putter had been on, she would have had a low score. Shani had a couple of shots get away from her off the tee, keeping her from her normal 70's round. We still have some playing cautious and trying to guide their shots and putts. We cannot play that way and expect to score.
-The Warhawks will be back on the Fighting Joe Course on Wednesday morning for the final round of the Sun Belt Conference Championship. ULM will tee off at 7:30 a.m. in eight minute incraments off of the 10th tee, paired with Coastal Carolina.
