QUOTES FROM COACH
Comments from Coach Ben Rickett
"Couldn't be happier for Trevor. He has played two difficult courses to start the semester and managed his way around one of the most difficult courses we play on extremely well. To win as a true freshman in his second start is extremely impressive."
"There were some good things and some disappointing things this week. We have a team that has a chance to be really good this year, but we need to learn to limit the damage! The Copperhead Course will expose those things and gives us some things to work on before we head to Barnsley Gardens."
The Roadrunners will tee it up again in two weeks when they make the short trek down I-75 to play in the TMU Fall Preview at Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville, Ga. on October 12 & 13.
