“We had a productive first meet here. We did some things that we felt like we were capable of doing and we did some things a little better than expected,” said Texas A&M head coach Pat Henry.
“I was pleased with the team overall. We look at the season as a ladder. We took that first step, now we have another step to take this weekend to get a little bit better in a few areas and tune some people up.”
