I think this is a great confidence boost for the rest of the team, the people that are not swimming through to get ready for ACCs to know that ‘this is my teammate right here and we train together’ and I think we’re on the right track. We’re excited, we’re going to do what we do best going into ACCs. We’re going to go and we’re going to fight, battle and going to compete hard until it’s over and enjoy every minute of it.” Uof L First Chance Results The University of Louisville men’s and women’s swimming and diving team finished the second day of finals at the Louisville Invitational with NCAA B-cuts and meet records.
