Sixth-year OU head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell said she liked what she saw from her extremely young squad.
“It was a good tournament for us,” Drouin-Luttrell said. “We did a lot of great things on the course and now we know what we need to work on moving forward. Hannah (Wood) had a great weekend. She works hard and I’m happy to see her play well.”
The Sooners will return to the course March 13-15 when they travel to Mesa, Ariz., for the Clover Cup.
