“On the women’s side, we’ve got the defending national champion in BYU so there will be some challenges there. On the men’s side, Southern Utah, they were ninth at the NCAA Championships in March and they’re going to be good. Furman, who finished in the top 20 the past two years is coming too. This meet is going to be top heavy.”

Whatever it is, I really want that for these teams.”
