Head coach Cory Solberg said it was nice to get a team win in Frazee. "The course is a little tricky in spots, and everyone probably wishes that they could play one hole over, but our scores were still good for our second competition."

He was also pleased with the individual competitions. "Mallory continued her stellar play by taking first place, Lexi Kunza took second place ad continues to be toward the top," he said. "Rylee Hunt and Hope Rosen also posted good scores from Frazee, finishing in the top 10.
