“The girls worked hard all season and that time in the weight room and in the pool paid off for them this weekend.” said head coach Dennis Neat. “With what this team graduated from a year ago, we had to have others step up and fill in those roles this year. I couldn’t be prouder of what we accomplished in my first year. Now we set our sights on Diving Regionals and the State Finals in two weeks.”
