HEAD COACH MIKE COOK:

“They really showed up to play today. We only lost by seven strokes and had the best one-day team round for us in over a year. George (Langham) finished 9-under and had a great week as he finished as runner-up. Thomas Henderson and Trey Fesperman were 3-under and both had very good weeks. Freshman Pate Stansell‘s 68-stroke round was huge for us today. Everyone contributed and no one had a bad week, just a few silly mistakes. This is the youngest line up I’ve had since our first season 12 years ago. We will improve.”

UP NEXT:

The Mariners will head to Tarpon Springs, Fla. to compete in the Innisbrook Invitational at the Copper Head Course on Sept. 26.
