Coach Chadwell’s thoughts

“We’re very excited to bring all the momentum of fall and early spring to this week,” first-year head coach Gerrod Chadwell said. “We had some good performances this fall, but something really clicked for us in the desert match play tournament we played in January. Our chemistry is really good and we’re excited to come out and compete against a really good field.
