THOUGHTS WITH HARDY
- "Our performance showed our players that hard work and discipline are still needed for our team to achieve our goals. We have the ability to excel at the highest level, but unfortunately did not show it this week."
- "Blake [Hathcoat] has been our bright spot. Leading our team two events in a row is a great sign for things to come for the sophomore."
- "Ash [Hakim] contributed in each of his events and put up solid final scores two weeks in a row."
- Pavan Sagoo led the Gaels with a final round 68 (4 birdies, 1 bogey), and finished tied-21st in the field.
- Blake Hathcoat finished tied-14th on the leaderboard after shooting 65-70-73 (-5).
- Freshman Ash Hakim held steady over the three rounds shooting 72-71-71 (+1) to finish tied-33rd.
- Senior Perry Cohen ended tied-25th at 2-under par. The senior shot an eagle-3 on the par 5 15th in today's final round.
- The Gaels finished second in the field in total eagles (3).
- Saint Mary's will travel to Stockton for the Pacific Invitational from Oct. 26-28.
- The three-day tournament will be held at The Reserve Golf Club, a sight of a 2018 NCAA Regional.
