Head Coach Susan Holt's Take
"We're still not getting four solid rounds each day for the team score, which is disappointing because of the talent that we have 1-5. I'm really happy for Emma and her solid play once again. Tying for 11th on the individual leaderboard against this field is impressive."
Notre Dame has a week off to prepare for the Atlantic Coast Conference Championships on April 13-15 at The Reserve Golf Club in Pawley's Island, South Carolina.
