Coach’s Comments
“We had a wonderful spring break in Florida working on our game while having plenty of time for fun team activities. We topped it off with a team win in Augusta and an individual win for Rachel. What a spring break! We’re excited to get home and have a few weeks to prepare for ACCs and the rest of the postseason. Go Deacs!” – head coach Kim Lewellen
