“We were able to hold our position today even though we gave too many shots away on the greens.” Kansas coach Erin O’Neil said. “Tomorrow will be a good opportunity to take advantage of the weather conditions since the forecast is for cold temps and rain and hopefully we can capitalize on that to move up the leaderboard a few spots. Minami played very well today in tough conditions and did a great job of leading the way for us.”
