Coach Kelli Kamimura Quote – "We're excited to compete in the Golfweek Red Sky Classic this week. It's a large field with teams from across the country that we don't get to compete against too often. We had a solid start to the season in Wisconsin last week. There were a lot of good things and somethings to work on. We've really been focusing on our short game and the mental component this week. We're working on being focused and decisive in our decision making and continuing to get one-day better each day of the season."
