“Overall tonight was a great learning experience for the guys. It is important to be in a really close meet where every spot in every event is valuable, especially against other Conference teams. The guys will get to see both of these teams again next week at the EIAC meet so it will be important to improve from tonight. I am looking forward to seeing how our guys respond and looking forward to a very close, exciting Conference meet.”
