Indians head coach Nathan Boatman after the game said, “Jackson did a great job getting it done on our tough course.”
Boatman continues to be impressed with the play of Kiefer who has been the low scorer for the Indians so far this year. Boatman said of Kiefer’s performance on Tuesday, “He did well for us, and he continues to strike the ball well.”
