We always know he's going to perform -- there's no question about whether it will be a good swim or a bad swim for him. Everybody's looking forward to seeing what he can do at Nationals.

The Division I schools really don't respect us until they realize we are winning. We just swim and our team speaks for itself.

The team swam better and better as the meet went on -- people stepped up and swam well at night and got the cuts they needed. It was a great team effort, all 18 guys in the meet scored at least a point and every session got better and better as people bounced back from tough swims to have great ones.
