Leading the match, Matt Lewis (’16) and Eric Maser (’17) were both medalists, each shooting 3-over-par 38.
Lewis was pleased with the result of the match and the effort that the team put in.
“We struggled even though we pulled off a win of 57 strokes, so that shows how good our team is,” Lewis said.
He sees that there is more for the team to improve on. As the team gets ready to play Cupertino, it will focus on one aspect of their game.
