"We are starting to show that we're a good young team. In this meet, we continued our string of producing personal bests and have totaled about 15-20 in the past two weekends. Those performances and getting another NCAA mark obviously show that we are moving in the right direction. Our team is coming together, and we look forward to going to Gainesville next Sunday and continuing our progress.
"It was a great way for Nicole to start, getting a solid provisional in her first 800 of the year. I also tip my hat to Sharon Dickie for the way she doubled in the 5000 and 3000 and produced two of her best times ever in those events.
"Seeing Dee Dee come from behind to beat an All-American in the 200 meters and Toyin post a PR, getting improvements from Janine Tessarzik in the throws and the vaulters each week -- these are all exciting moments for our team. We just want to keep moving in the right direction and be ready for the SEC Championships, because they are not too far down the road."
