"It is a fun course," said Roscoe. "The greens are very quick, but you do get rewarded for good shots." The golfers were on the course on the second day and had anywhere from two to seven holes to complete when they were pulled from the course due to the weather. Heavy rains, some- where around two inches, and tornado warnings were issued which made of- ficials cancel the second day of com- petition. Senior Bryn Stock summed up the season. "We knew we had a good team, but you never know how things will go at the state meet," said Stock. "It is a good feeling knowing that we were able to accomplish something that we have all worked very hard at."
