Here are some of the notable quotes from the weekend, including interviews with PAC-12 individual champions Brooke Forde, Isabel Ivey, and Kaitlyn Dobler, along with Cal’s head coach Teri McKeever

Brooke Forde after her victory in the 400 IM: “I mean, I’m just trusting in my training. You know, I haven’t raced one in a while,  but I train for it all the time. Just thinking back to all those practices I’ve done and knowing that I’m prepared.” 


Isabel Ivey following her 100 butterfly/100 backstroke double: “Honestly the whole time I was thinking of this practice we did a couple weeks ago and Terri had me do a round fly, and then a round of back. So, just taking it one step at a time, one event at a time.” 


Kaitlyn Dobler after her win in the 100 breaststroke: “We put a lot of focus on the details, cause a lot of the time that’s what it’s come down to. I did a lot [of starts] during warm-up of this meet, and I’m glad it paid off.”


Cal head coach Teri McKeever on the team’s bonding during the pandemic: “We’ve done a lot of things this summer to build-on and we’ve been just trying to make the best of Zoom meetings and different ways to connect.”
