“We certainly didn’t play well this week,” coach Sean Covich said. “There were some bright spots here and there but overall not what we have been working towards.
“This was definitely a learning experience for our three freshmen. Playing on a golf course like this in windy conditions lets you know really quick where your game stands and what you need to work on.”
The Mountaineers will remain in Texas to compete in the Big 12 Fall Series Friday-Sunday, outside of Houston.
“We have a quick turnaround for Big 12 Match Play,” Covich added. “We will use the next two days to work on some things and be ready to bounce back in Houston.”
