Head Diving Coach Jay Lerew
"I was really proud of Charlye [Campbell] because the girl from Texas is the NCAA Champion and she just picked her off, so that's going to be a big confidence booster for the next few weeks."
Women's Head Coach Steve Bultman
"We had some really good swims, I was pleased with how we raced. In a lot of races, we were better than what we were two weeks ago and that's what we talked about. We want to improve, we want to make progress, we want to fix some of the things we didn't do right two weeks ago and keep moving on."
