“Alyssa and Autumn played a solid round today at Miracle Hills Golf Course with a 12th and 14th place finish in a good field. The key on that course is accuracy off the tee and take advantage of the approach shots. This has been a tough spring of poor weather and limited practice but we were ready to play today and a 7th place finish is good for us going into the next event in Lincoln," said assistant golf coach, Karrie Van Ravenswaay.
