"It's great that Jillian and Haleigh are part of college history today and are laying the foundation for the program," coach Thomas Brennan said. "Today's course was a little longer then they are used to, but I really like both ladies' approach on the course, they both are hard workers and will continuously improve upon each week's results. Both are very solid with very good swings and hit the ball well."
