The weather was pleasant and the course at Lakeside is in good shape…  Our individual scores were in line with how the girls have played the last few matches… We have some room for improvement before the region tournament next month. I think we will get better with the majority of our matches being played in the next few weeks before the region tournament… We travel to Bonnie Brae GC to face JL Mann tomorrow… I look for us to play better tomorrow than we did last time we faced Mann… Brooke Davis returns for us from injury and a 5th score should help us out.”… Click on the following to see complete match details: 2013 Lady Raider Invitational
