"I am extremely proud of these young women.  They do not give up and they do not know the meaning of the word quit.  To see the improvement in their game from August to now has been a lot of fun.  I am very happy with the way that they battled back on day two, after a disappointing first round of golf.  It is especially incredible when parents and coaches from other schools compliment the attitudes and etiquette of my players.  Each one of these girls is special and exhibit sportsmanship on the course and scholarship in the classroom.  To think that these girls are all returning to play next year makes me excited and ready to get back to work!" - Coach Henson
