Quote from head coach Erika Brennan:
"I'm excited that the team was able to play the golf that they were capable of playing and end with a great round. Norway had a great tournament and it's encouraging that she's only a sophomore. Gwad finishing in the top 10 is also a great performance. It's been an incredible season and this is a group that won't soon be forgotten. They have consistently elevated the status of this program, and I'm honored to be their coach."
Quote from Henriette Syr:
"I was very pleased with my performance this week. It's a Great course, really good conditions and the weather couldn't have been better. As a team we had so much fun all week with our parents and host families. I'm really glad that the team finished on a high note. It was a great way to end the season off on a high note knowing we have three seniors leaving us. I'm excited to see the program progress in the years to come."
Quote from Nichada Satasuk:
"I'm very happy how I finished this week. The weather and course were very nice through the whole week. While we weren't able to capitalize on the good conditions the first two days, we did today and we are very proud to end on that note. We are very sad to have our three seniors leave, but know the program has grown tremendously because of them. I can't wait to see what will bring us next year."
