"I'm pleased with the way the boys all played," Grant Union coach Ron Lundbom said. "This was the first time at Wildhorse for four of the boys on varsity this week. We keep improving on our team totals each week and that's great. The boys all had fun and are eager to return in two weeks and improve on the holes that they had trouble on."
