It does't get much better than this.
Our men's golf team has now completed their practice and competition in Arroyo Grande, California.
On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, we got to play
three of the top golf courses in the area. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, we had days of competition in the Cal Poly Lamkin Match Play event at
Anytime there is a scoreboard, you like to win.
However, I made sure the guys remembered why they were here in the larger picture. Starting next weekend at our Fireline Towson Invitational, we will have four strong events in which we will be participating.
The Rutherford, the Longwood Invitational and the CAA Championships at Wilmington C.C. in Delaware will follow the Fireline. Each of those tournaments is filled with good teams and our goal over this spring break was to prepare for those events.

Then, we had our breakfast at Denny's without the cook. The cook had called in sick and the waitress said she knew how to make scrambled eggs and potatoes. A refresher course might be in the cards for her.
Plus, there was our lost luggage which eventually got here by Tuesday in

However, the best of all was the exceptional camaraderie among this team. This team's spirit and joviality, along with their competitive nature and talent will continue to be heard from. This week they were like the Four Musketeers Plus One - "all for one and one for all."
We hope many of you will come to Prospect Bay C.C. in Grasonville, Md. on Kent Island next weekend and support these young men who represent Towson so well.
Thank you for following our blogs and we are looking
forward to getting back home.
