“It was an exciting competition between us, Jefferson, and Whitewater. At one point both those teams were in front of us, and then we pulled ahead of both of them, but Jefferson managed to come back to edge us out. Four points is the blink of an eye in a swim meet but I’m proud of how we as the underdog put up a fight.”

“Overall the guys swam well, getting best times and having some gutsy races. One of the spectators said to me that you can always tell who our athletes are because they have good technique and swim with a lot of heart. That means a lot to have that reputation as a program and nicely sums up what our athletes did today.”
