Say What? | Head Coach Zach Whitkanack

On the performance of both teams…

"I was really happy with both the men's and women's performances last night! On the men's side, we struggled to score points but had a lot of season-best performances and we continue to improve."

"The women's team had a very impressive meet! We scored points in almost every event we entered and beat some strong programs. Highlights of the night included great performances by Alicia Lombardo in the long jump and Breanna Barger in the 800. The 4x200 and 4x400 relays teams also had some great showings. I was very proud of the toughness of our women's program. "
