“I believe with the roster we have coming back, plus the talented freshmen we have coming in, that we are positioned for a great season,” Covich said. There are no off weeks with this schedule. We must work hard, prepare well and play our best to have a chance in these events. But one of the reasons you come to play at West Virginia, besides competing in the premier conference in college golf, is playing an incredible regular season schedule.”
