POST-MEET QUOTES
Head Coach John Hayman
“It was good to get a couple of wins under our belt.  We were able to move some swimmers around to get some exposure in different events.  We continue to improve with each meet and we even had a few lifetime best swims today.  We are off next Saturday, so our focus is now on the Pod meet the first weekend in November at UNCW.”
