After Saturday’s meet, Head coach Michelle Eisenreich said, “We went into HYP looking forward to taking on the reigning Indoor Ivy League champions, and I am incredibly pleased with the really big win, and being able to beat them on their home turf. One of the goals was to make sure that we were battling in every event, and that was the case given we placed first or second in almost every event.”
“Our competitiveness is a quality that is going to be important to continue to show to help us win a championship as a team. HYP marks the midpoint of the season, so now until Heps we will be focusing on tuning up and improving in specific events. We look forward to those opportunities to compete and then eventually battling for the championship.”
