Tennessee has put up a really energetic crowd and just knowing that coming into this meet for my class, this is the third time we've wanted to come in and defend our title; it has been an amazing experience. Being a senior and seeing it from this perspective for my last time here it has been so much fun to feed off of the energy from the crowd."

Marcin Cieslak, Florida

Victoria Lamp, Tennessee
