"The women put up a great effort at our DMACC Invite. It was a very windy day, which made conditions very tough," DMACC Head Women's Golf Coach Chris Seaboch said. "The women displayed great attitudes despite the conditions being tough. And that's the number one thing we always focus on as coaches. We ask them to keep fighting for every stroke, and they did that. With Iowa Western full of International players, and Central College full of juniors and seniors, we knew a high finish would be very tough. But for us to finish third, and 10 shots ahead of Iowa Lakes, I am happy with where we finished."
"Krista has put together back-to-back good rounds and it's good to see her playing closer to her potential," Seaboch said. "We are still waiting for the opportunity to have three or four scores all in the 80s. We have the players to do it, we just need them to keep working on the little things like chipping and putting."
The DMACC Bears compete next in the Grand View Viking Invitational being held at Otter Creek in Ankeny on Monday, October 19.
