"Words cannot describe how proud I am of these young men. This is the first team championship in over two seasons for us and I am so happy they get to enjoy this moment together on our home course. It is a moment they will never forget. We had some strong finishes by all of our guys coming down the stretch to pull off this win. We have held at least a share of the lead in three of our first four tournaments this fall but I am so proud of how they dug down deep and pulled this one off. This is a total team effort from number one to number eighteen on our roster. It is time to enjoy this win and get ready for our next event in four days," said Head Men's Golf Coach Jacob Miller.
