Coach Mike Mayer said he is still looking for someone on his team to step forward and become the team leader, but is optimistic that his team is ready to play. "We had our best qualifying results of the year this past Sunday," he said. "Hopefully that will carry over to Marshall."
Mayer also said that Marshall will probably have the best field of the year and the team knows the importance of playing well. "This is a big weekend for us as far as NCAA points are concerned," he said. "Our statistics look good, except for putting and chipping, and we have really concentrated on those areas this week in practice."
