Augusta, Ga--While the GRU Augusta women already have a couple of spring tournaments in the books, the men are set to tee it up this weekend for the first time. Also will mark the debut of coach Jack O'Keefe, who's trying to lead the program back to the NCAA tournament.
Jags had a solid fall campaign with four top ten finishes in five events. But now, it's the new look with o'keefe taking over for Kevin McPherson. Getting to know the players and their strengths and weaknesses was the first priority and yea, there's a few nerves for him as they get ready to start for real.
"I'm excited, and a little nervous on the expectations of the team this year" said Jack O'Keefe "I think we're good on paper but we need a little more experience. We're pretty young, but overall I've been very pleased with what I've seen so far."
"We have a load of talent here but some of us just don't know how to focus in the right areas" said Maverick Antcliff "We've been doing a lot of statistical work, so he knows what our weaknesses are and what our strengths are so he's just tailoring our practice to that to help us become the best players possible."
Jags will be in Ponte Vedra, Florida starting Sunday. Look for Maverick Antcliff to continue to lead this team. He's quickly become one of the best around.
