Coach Weston on the Meet:

"We went up against another tough SUNYAC opponent for the second straight weekend and we put together a solid effort. Having competed against them for the 3rd straight season, we have shown tremendous growth as a program having many more closer races than the previous two meets. I'm really proud of the hard work we put into this past week and to have several swimmers hit personal best times was amazing."

The Pioneers are back in AMCC action next Saturday when they travel to Penn State Altoona for a 1 p.m. meet.
