“The meet took around an hour longer than usual because of lightning delays and occasional downpour, but it was nice to finally kick-off the season,” head coach James Lautzenheiser said. “Ironically, this was our only home for the 2019 outdoor season, so it was nice to entertain our home crowd with some excellent finishes.”

“We may not have had as many first-place finishes and stellar marks as we would like, but we feel good about how we’re leaving March and heading into April,” Lautzenheiser continued. “The next three weeks will really get our squads in shape for an excellent tournament run in mid-May. We’re excited for the challenge, and feeling optimistic about our team.”
