QUOTABLE: HEAD SWIMMING COACH McGee Moody

"We finished a very tough road trip today with some strong racing against Cincinnati. I am pleased with the way our swimmers and divers responded after a tough loss against Purdue.

We have another very quick turn around before we race North Carolina on Thursday to kick off South Carolina's Homecoming Weekend. We look forward to being home and competing in front of our fans."

QUOTABLE: HEAD DIVING COACH Todd Sherritt

"Today was a great day coming back to my alma mater. Everyone had great performances which made it even more special. We had Cincinnati out-gunned so the victory was expected.

The better part of that is everyone made some solid adjustments coming off the Purdue meet. Making changes is what it's all about, building on each meet and making progress to prepare for the SEC and NCAA Championships.

Great performances today from Julia Vincent, winning both boards and posting a 370 score on the three meter. Grant Summers won his first dual meet on the three meter. Yu Qian Goh finished second on both boards, posting her highest score and finish this year.

Karlee Price is staying steady, and put down a great full out. That's something that we've been working on. Mikaela Lujan had a great day aw well, putting in some great dives. Lyle Markman had to overcome abdominal injury and had a solid performance. He finished third on the three meter, posting his highest finish this season.

Overall, I am happy with this team. We have UNC this Thursday. They have a strong team, so we're looking forward to that."

UP NEXT FOR CAROLINA

South Carolina will return to Columbia for their home opener on Thu., Oct. 26, against North Carolina. The meet will begin at 4 p.m. in the Carolina Natatorium.
