Indiana Head Coach Mike Mayer
On seniors David Erdy and Chase Wright:
"It has really been my privilege to coach David Erdy and Chase Wright for the past four years. There could not have been better ambassadors for Indiana University and better student-athletes than those two."
On the final round:
"We were flat. We knew we had to get off to a great start today and we just didn't do it. It's the kind of golf course that only gives you so many opportunities and we didn't take advantage of those."
On the team:
"We've had a great year. We are a nationally top ranked team and we just came up a little bit short in this tournament. We have the core of our team back and with the players we have on this team we're going to be very, very competitive next year."
