Florida head men’s and women’s swimming coach Gregg Troy wraps up his women’s team’s performance at NCAA’s in Minneapolis last week, and then previews his men’s swims for next week. He said he wished they could have finished higher, but he was satisfied with 6 school records. He admits that moving swimmers around to different places, probably referencing in part Elizabeth Beisel in the 200 fly, didn’t work out the way they expected.
On his men, he discusses that the expectation is always the same, implying national titles, but that the expectations some years are “a little more realistic,” which is a great line.
Troy, like most people, is expecting a much tighter battle than the women’s meet, and a much bigger pool of teams fighting for the overall award.
