“We are happy to be leading against the 8 time defending state champion (Montgomery), and look forward to tomorrow since we believe we have some even better golf in us. It is an exciting start to the season. We struck the ball well on a very tight course. All the girls had some moments where they hit it well and the scoring part just did not happen. Casey was very steady as we have come to expect. Erin and Haley put together some good streaks as well.”
