“We played solid golf today,” Arkansas head coach Shauna Estes-Taylor said. “It was a good group effort but we let a few shots slip away down the stretch. But as I told the team, we had a great fall, a great end to the 2014 season. We came up a little bit short this weekend but I saw a lot of great stuff. I told the players we have to be diligent in our details. A shot here or there makes the difference.
I’m really proud of this group,” Estes-Taylor added. “I’ll be curious to see who steps up consistently in the fifth spot during the off season. We have had a lot of really good competition in that spot which shows me we have great depth. We are going back to work hard and build on what we learned this fall.”
