Coaches Corner: "We are all excited to get out there on our home course," SIUE assistant coach Kayla Brown said. "The athletes train out there on a daily basis and have had great workouts on the course in the last couple weeks. Our veteran leadership is crucial to what we do on a daily basis. Aly (Goff) is taking on a new leadership role for our team. Ben (Scamihorn) coming back and performing the way he did after 15 weeks off from racing shows what hard work can do, and it lit a spark for our team."
