Head coach Dale Schrank was very pleased with the results of the meet. ” It would have been nice to keep the streak alive, but I certainly have no complaints with the effort levels or a 2nd place finish in a 13 team event.” ” The 2019 season looks very promising with this group of up and coming swimmers.” commented Schrank.
