COACH PERKINS QUOTE
“Just another exciting day. The girls were maybe just a little tired from last night, especially when you have a big victory like that, and comeback the next day mentally tough. They came out strong and fast.
Super proud of how hard they have been working, and it pays off especially when you’re tired, and come out perform the way they did.
Wonderful group of seniors. The girls are awesome, they’re passionate, and they’re hungry. They want to see what we can do as a team. Every day they come in and they work, and I hope they keep pushing to have a great finish.”
Falcons Swimming and Diving will prepare for the Zippy Invitational that will take place from Friday, Nov. 30 to Sunday, Dec. 2.
