Thoughts From Coach Watts 

On today's event: This meet gave us a chance get some extra work in, run a few people who missed VMI and improve our conference standing as we head into our final meet before the SoCon Championship. The primary goal for the weekend was to improve individually and compete hard on our home track."

On this weekend's results: "I saw a whole lot of that Friday and Saturday as well as today. Our team is much improved because of our competitions. I'm very pleased with the effort of both teams and look forward to continued improvement between now and the end of the month."
