"It was a good meet for South Carolina", stated Coach Stan Rosenthal. "I was very pleased with the way we ran today. We continue to improve after each meet, which was our goal when we started the season."
Senior co-caption Kinsey Eschenburg also continues to run well, as she finished in the top ten for the second straight weekend.
