TOP QUOTE #1
“Overall, it was not the weekend we had hoped for. Obviously, we had some disappointments. Just a little bit off, not much, but just a little off. Up here, that’s all it takes. There’s national champions and collegiate record-holders that don’t make the finals up here, so it’s a rough meet. You’ve got to be on. And we weren’t far off on a few, but we had hoped to do a little better. I am proud of Annie (Rhodes), proud of Wil (London) for getting in there and battling. And all of our seniors, they’ve had amazing careers at Baylor, and my hat’s off to all of them. I can’t say how much we appreciate them and all that they’ve done. We came up here with a good group, we hoped to do a little better team-wise, but it just didn’t happen. So, we will go back, reload, we’ll bring a bunch of young ones hopefully back up here next year and be ready to go.” – head coach Todd Harbour on the meet
