QUOTING COACH MEGAN MENZEL
"We look forward to concluding our fall season in North Carolina," said UI head coach Megan Menzel. "We have had a solid week of practice with a strong focus on short game and on course time. We continue to work to get just a little bit better each day and to gain some confidence in our games. I think the difference for us will be a commitment this week to get out of our own way and make sure we are playing with clear heads."
The 12-team field features Campbell, Gardner-Webb, High Point, Iowa, Longwood, Mercer, Nova Southeastern, Old Dominion, Richmond, Western Carolina, and Winthrop.
