Grace of the three junior golfers on the team was asked about her favorite part of the match, Thorrez said, “My favorite part was on the t-box, driving it was going straight and far. I was satisfied.” When asked about her biggest goals for the season, she states, “My biggest goal for the season would definitely be to drop my stroke countdown and try to be in the 30s.” 

Hannah Stimer, also a junior asked what one of her biggest challenges was, she stated, “playing in the rain and taking it less seriously and just having fun.” Hannah was also asked about her goals for the season, she shared,“ I want to do well at regionals and make it back to states again.”
