  • "We were disappointed in our overall day one scores; hoever we needed to make an adjustment and limit the damage and we did that on day two," Pima men's golf coach Marcus Smith said. "We've got to remember that we are not in a race, we're in a marathon. We chipped away at the leaderboard and set ourselves up for a good third day.
    "Everyone is batting and we're going to have to dig deep and keep progressing forward in our toughest battle of the year."
  • The Aztecs will compete in the third round of the NJCAA Division I National Championships on Thursday at the Odessa Country Club.
