Sixth-year OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell said she was excited to see her young team’s hard work pay off.

“We played better today. It was fun watching us make more putts,” Drouin-Luttrell said. “I’m proud of the way we’ve been practicing up to this event, and we’ve definitely improved in some of the areas we’ve focused on over the last few weeks.”
