Quote Of The Day
“Our team was aggressive (at Wisconsin). In the coming weeks, I don’t really want to change that. But to go really win at the high level, you’ve got to be able to close. And that’s the one thing that our group can do a better job with. And when we are firing on all cylinders, I believe our team is very capable of doing that …”
“Full disclosure, I am a believer (in this team). (Before the season) I understood and I looked at our personnel, and I thought that we could be very good. But I’ve also thought that we could go finish fourth place in the PAC-12 championships and then go be fourth place at the NCAA championships. With Oregon, Stanford, Colorado and us, I think there are four really, really good women’s teams.”
“The goal is to find a way to stand on the podium (top 4 at NCAAs), and that is the big goal. That was our expectation when I walked away from our training camp. At the NCAAs last year, we had a woman qualify at 800 meters, two in the 1,500, one in the steeple, one in the 10k. We had women all over the place and I think success on the track equates to success on the track. And that’s where the confidence in this group grows.”
