Quotes 

Head Coach Casie Maxwell

·      "I just think it was really great for all of these girls, freshmen and returners, to come out and shake out their nerves. It was great team comradery and we learned how to host a meet."

·      "It sets up great for going into such a heavy fall home season that we have. Everybody rode extremely well. We had some mistakes and we are going to have mistakes every time, but I think they acknowledge what they need to do better and we will just come out on Monday and start working on that."
