Coach Mike De Witt commented: "The men did a solid job at this meet. We were looking to get out a little stronger and compete with the field a notch better than last week, but we fell a little short of what was expected. The good point is that we are training well and we have nearly 2 months to improve, which I am confident we will accomplish."
