Thought on the Event: We are looking forward to competing at the Gary Koch. The field is competitive with Virginia, Auburn, Kentucky and N.C. State participating. The guys need to step up, as we have not played our best as of late and it's time to produce. The Sun Belt Championship is fast approaching so momentum is needed.
-Following the Gary Koch Invitational, the Warhawks will head to San Destin, Florida for the Sun Belt Conference Championships which are slated to kick off of Sunday, April 23.
