QUOTING HEAD COACH MEGAN MENZEL

"We are looking forward to working on what we learned this week.  We have to come out stronger this next week in Tucson.  Morgan had a solid week and I am happy for her that she broke her individual 54-hole scoring record.  I know she feels like she left some shots out there, but I think overall it was a good start for her."
