“Taylore played well and our team did a very solid job,” Pepperdine Coach Laurie Gibbs said. “It’s hard to tell how it’s going when you’re out on the course so we were very happy when we finished and learned we were tied for second. We’re in a good position and we’re looking forward to the next two days. Taylore hit a lot of good shots and made some excellent par putts. She played very smart.”
