"For getting off the bus after a four-hour bus trip, I was really happy with how we did. It’s a Friday meet where it’s not scored and we’re wearing the technical suits, like they are going to do at Big 12’s,” Head Coach Clark Campbell said. “It’s really important for them to feel what that’s like, because it definitely feels different than a normal meet. It is a really good learning opportunity. Tomorrow, we can get more into dual meet mode and do our thing. For the challenge that was today, I thought they did a really good job."Head Coach Clark Campbell
