Clover coach Doug Wokoun’s comments:

This match was a real disappointment in the sense that we have made very little progress over the last three weeks. Inconsistent play is killing us right now, and we can’t seem to find a way to overcome it. Everybody had a couple of pretty good holes, but we had enough bad things happen that we couldn’t overcome them.

I am sure Coach Alspaugh was disappointed in some things North did, but they handled the wind and conditions much better than we did. Both teams had to compete under the same conditions, and they clearly managed that better than we did.

We can talk about the various adversities we have endured, but at the end of the day, we have to accept them and find a way to overcome them. We aren’t doing that right now. We have pretty high expectations, but right now they are only expectations. If we don’t perform, then it is all just potential. I look at our group and see a number of young men who have the opportunity to be very good golfers, but they have to seize the opportunity.

Cloverdale (2-3) travels to Greencastle on Thursday.
