We were having difficulty getting into a groove, but they stayed in it and grinded. We had some individuals play well. Raul Gonzalez (SO/McAllen, Texas) placed third with a total of 225. I'm proud of how he played. We are looking forward to the break before the conference tournament. We know what we must work on, and we are going to make sure to prepare for the contest. Go, Saints!"
