Quote | Head Coach Abe Nasser

On the team's 5th Place finish at the Mount St. Joseph Spring Invite...

"It's never easy to come out and just pick things up where you left off. Spring is a difficult time for golfers due to Indiana winters. The team played fairly well the first day and put ourselves in contention. Unfortunately, we didn't play well enough on day two to bring home the title."

On Kuppler's 1st Place finish...

"Colton is a special player. His swing is so fundamentally sound that he has the ability to win any tournament he enters. He won this tournament by four shots and made it look easy. He continues to represent SMWC by winning and I look for that to continue"

Next On The Schedule
