WHAT THEY SAID:

  • "We had a great week as a team, led by our senior Sydney Weaver who took first. She won her first event since Jekyll two years ago, so we're really excited. We finished second as a team only to the defending national champions, so it really sets us up well for our event at Jekyll. This is a great start to the spring season and will hopefully carry over to conference and nationals." - Head Women's Golf Coach, Jesse Lawley

UP NEXT:

The Vikings will travel to Jekyll Island, Ga., for the Jekyll Island Invitational on Saturday, March 18.
