As a team we competed hard and are still improving."

Coach Seals was happy with the results. "I love this team- they are one of the most together teams- rooting for each other, positive attitudes, that I have ever coached. What we need to focus on now is the off the course preparation. Things like diet, proper hydration, massage, ice baths are what will keep us healthy and able to maintain our training schedule injury free."
