“I am extremely proud of how we came out and raced tonight,” said Head Swimming and Diving Coach Ryan Wochomurka. “We haven’t came out as a whole team since early December. That’s a long layoff and we’re rusty in a few spots, but we’re racing well and seeing what we need to clean-up for four weeks from now. More importantly, I continue to be impressed by the grittiness of this team. Mother Nature and facility issues conspired against us and robbed us of a couple day of preparation, but no excuses. We came out in spite of that and battled two very good SEC teams in Arkansas and Vanderbilt.”




“I continue to be encouraged by a lot of the things I saw today," said Head Swimming & Diving Coach Ryan Wochomurka. “Hats off to Arkansas. They were very fresh and ready to race, it was important for their new front office for them to come in have a good performance. We know that they have an uphill battle at their conference championship and we’re glad to have raced them. Our primary focus, has been and will continue to be, is to win a conference championship.While I hate to lose, we’re out here with a long-term perspective of what we hope to do at the conference championship in Dallas. I saw some very good things from some people, the dust is off and we’ll come back in race mode next week against a couple tough opponents.”
