“It wasn’t exactly the way we wanted to finish off the week, but I know we’re going to take away a lot of positives,” head coach Jay Goble said. “We played against some of the best teams in the country this week, and we know we can hang with them. We have spring break this week, so the team is going to have a few days off to regroup and recharge their batteries, and then we’ll get back to work next weekend preparing for the rest of the season.”


WHAT'S NEXT 
Baylor’s next tournament is the Bryan National Collegiate, which runs March 31-April 2 at Bryan Park Golf Club in Browns Summit, N.C.
