    "After coming off of spring break and 12 days off I thought we competed well today," said head coach Zac Cox. "We had some good things happen and we have some areas we need to improve on such as handoffs, our jumps, and preparation in general. Preston Boone, Austin Lowry, and Kane Carrigan all had personal records today in their events and the 1600 relay ran a great time of 3:29.0 for this time of the year."
