Coach Walt Williams, on the WSU team: "Amy Eneroth continues to play well. Brooke Henderson is playing really, really well. Outside of those two we aren't getting much help from the 3, 4, 5 spots. So we need for Brook (Henderson) to continue to play well and we need Tracy Broders and Diana Hong to step up and play the way they are capable of playing. In fact in qualifying Tracy Broders shot a 68. So I know she is more than capable of playing great golf. Diana (Hong) is a freshman and at times she may be overwhelmed, but I know she is capable of playing great golf as well. Jessica Black is coming back from injury and I'm looking for her to give us a little spark as well."
