This meet showed us that we're making good progress, but that we still need to buckle down and perform as we head into April," said Head Coach Kirk Reynolds. "In April we have a couple of SCIAC scored meets, plus our own big invite, and we head into the Conference Championships at the end of the month. We need to keep working hard!"
