Head Coach Emily Glaser’s Take

On the results…
“Golf is a fickle game, so despite this week’s outcome, we are optimistic about the team we know we can be and have proven to be in the past. Our focus needs to be on buckling down at home, increasing our work ethic and discipline, and taking a proactive approach to improving every aspect of our game. When we can keep making improvements in those areas, we will have the pieces needed to be successful.”

On injuries changing the lineup…
“We didn’t have our best stuff this week. However, that doesn’t excuse this type of performance. We needed more contribution from our veterans. We need to be able to rely on them in these situations.”

On Maisie Filler…
“I’m really pleased with what I saw from Maisie this week. She is very committed and has been improving each week. Her final round was really, really good – so steady. I’m happy to see her have a nice finish.”
