“We played well on Thursday,” EWC head golf coach Zach Smith said. “We definitely felt like we left some shots out there but overall, the first day was solid. We could have played much better on day two.
It was fairly cold and windy in the morning. The guys looked good early but let some get away later in the round.”

“We had a strong Fall season, and we look forward to getting some classes caught up after a hectic fall travel schedule and continue to work on our game,” Smith said.
