I can't believe we're entering the
final week of regular season
practice! It's hard to believe that
only a few short months ago we were
struggling to make it to the gazebo
at Heritage Park. Everyone's
performances yesterday were a long
way from that first night on the paseo...It was
another great day of individual
performances at O'Melveny. You
should feel very confident returning
to the same course next Saturday for
the League Finals!
