Team Captain MacKenzie Tout:

“I thought the boys played well despite the conditions out there. We got the short end of the stick on Monday with the afternoon rain, but that’s golf. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and grind and that’s what these guys did. I thought we showed a lot of character out there, representing Lakehead well both on and off the golf course. I’m very proud of this group of guys… we’ve come a long way since our first season in 2011 and I hope we continue to build and develop our golf program for years to come. Experiences like this are encouraging for a young program.”
