“Overall, we had a good week with the Citadel dual match and some good practices before getting our first tournament of the spring in over the weekend,” said Navy head coach Nadia Ste-Marie. “The course this weekend had small greens and it was very windy. It was tricky to select the right club and to get on the green. We have some more work to do now and we are looking forward to getting ready for William & Mary.”
Navy will next compete at the William and & Mary Intercollegiate in Williamsburg, Virginia from March 27-28. Navy will be competing at the William & Mary Intercollegiate for the fifth straight season.
