"I was really happy to see Dona place second," WWCC coach Mike Rostollan said. "I think she's a contender for individual honors at the championships."

He said his golfers have been playing hard, but need to play up to their potential.

"If they play up to their potential, they have a chance to beat the other (teams)," Rostollan said. "We're tired of finishing fourth. They're gunning for their best efforts in the next couple of week. They'd like a podium finish (at the NWAACC Championships)."
