"I cannot remember the last time we had as many season and lifetime personal records in a long time as we did this weekend. We came away with another regional qualifier and two school records, and anytime you do that I am not sure we can ask for a whole lot more. As I have said before, we are continuing to move in the right direction in a lot of different ways, now we have to turn our focus to the Penn Relays, and do well there."
