We see tomorrow as a big opportunity. We know if we play well we can move up the leaderboard even more. “We really struggled in our first round,” said Drake head coach Matt Lewis. “We got off to a bad start and just didn’t play well. We played much better in the second round. I was really proud the way the guys battled in the second round. I was impressed that they kept a positive attitude and fought for every stroke.”last_img
