Thoughts from Coach Watts:

On the women's team - "I'm pleased with today's performance and the entire weekend. Once again we had a fair number of personal and seasonal bests today. On top of that, Lindsay Cooper had a podium finish in the hurdles at the Darius Dixon meet. Other women's highlights included a much improved 4x400 and Nicole Johnson in the 200. All three have improved their SoCon rankings as we head into the conference meet. In Nashville, Lindsey Stallworth just missed her personal best in the 3000m and has to be considered a contender in that event at the conference meet. Jessica Lord dropped another three seconds to earn a season best in the 800m." 

On the men's team - "The men had a good day as well with a solid performance from Isaiah Mills in the 200m in Lynchburg. He is closing the gap on the conference list in the 400m and 200m and has a chance to make a final in two weeks. The highlights in Nashville included personal bests by all of the men who competed. The outstanding performance came from Matt Scarr in the 3000m with a very fine time of 8:05.39."

On looking onwards to the SoCon Indoor Championships - "We are as prepared as we can be at this point and just need to fine tune a few events and sharpen up for the conference meet to be held two weeks from now."
