The Warriors finished with a team score of 448, which was good for 13th place.
“We knew going in that it would be very difficult to medal with 14 of the top 15 girls coming back. The conditions made for a very long day but the girls did a great job of overcoming challenging weather. I know that the girls would have liked to play better but I was still very proud of their performances,” said Coach Carlson.
