"The team raced hard and had a good meet," said Head Coach Annie Ryder. "We are tired as a team coming off of winter training. But that's the point. Now we work to get ready for one more dual meet weekend and then it's conference. These kids have prepared themselves to race and swim fast and with a little rest they will surprise a few people."
