KSU Finishes Sixth at Magnolia Invitational

'Overall, this is a very disappointing finish to our fall season. We had high expectations headed into this fall season, with a new talented group, but we've struggled to put together three quality rounds other than at the Golfweek challenge.

'No doubt this group has talent and I'm glad we now have a long offseason to reflect on what was good and what needs thorough work. We will also look forward to welcoming Alizee to the roster to add some much-needed depth.'
