"Our women really came together today and got a nice win," head coach Sean Clark said. "I'm proud of the way our men swam, but we just came up a bit short. We had our best against their best and they were just a little faster. The top women came out and did their job and the rest of the team followed their lead. We're improving each meet and I like our progress heading towards the conference meet."
