"The girls played pretty well today, but we still fell victim to the "2 or 3 poor holes situation" where a good score becomes a little higher than what a girl would be ok with. Even so, the weather was beautiful and all 6 gals in our lineup will be back next year, and we will be hosting the conference meet at Oneota so we are already looking forward to this day next year," said head coach Scott Pierce.

The Vikings have a rescheduled meet next Monday in Charles City.
