"Overall I was very pleased with our performance at the meet, especially near the end of our trip," said head coach David Sheets. "The ladies have been working very hard here in Pompano and we are definitely heading back to Pittsburgh on Tuesday a better team from many aspects. We are excited to get back to campus and continue to build on this trip and get ready for the conference championships in February."
