HEARING FROM HEAD COACH MARC LONG
“We got a lot of racing in today in a short amount of time. Everyone gets a chance to swim certain events, and there’s only so much we can simulate in practice. It’s valuable to see this racing and these events to start off. This meet compliments the training we have going into the season and through February and March.”
Action against the Spartans and Northern Iowa begins tomorrow at 11 a.m. (CT) in the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center. Admission is free.
