I know this team is capable of winning every event we play in and I'm excited to get back on be road for our next event."

"I am very pleased with the way I played in this tournament and am very excited about my first collegiate win. I was not hitting it very well yesterday in the beginning of my round but I was very consistent with my putting and I was very stable mentally throughout both rounds. Today, I hit 16 greens and putted very well on the last nine holes making two birdies in a row to get under par, which was a great way to end the tournament. I am also very happy with the progress my team has made and am very excited about our team win."
