BEHIND THE WHISTLE
"Both our men's and women's teams swam hard today. It was a close contest between our guys and the Greensboro men, and although we didn't end with the result we wanted I'm proud of their efforts. Our women's team had several impressive swims despite working through injuries this week. They are a determined crew that will not let much slow them down. Next weekend we are off and will allow us to recharge before our meet in two weeks." --Head Coach Margaret Bisnett
