Women’s Golf Head Coach Erin Fahey had this to say about her team’s resilience throughout the 54 holes:

“I’m proud of the way our team fought in the third round today. We did not get off to a great start, but they hung in there and fought hard,” she said. “We are looking forward to ironing some things out over the next seven days in preparation for the Dolores Black Falcon Invitational.”

The Falcons will finally host a tournament as they come back for the Dolores Black Falcon Invitational at the Stone Ridge Golf Club.

The tournament will take place April 7-8.
