The Gold Group did a really nice job and senior training group is making consos and finals and scoring points. Sunday should be one of our stronger days with the medley relays.

“The team is really coming together,” Anderson said. “They are doing a good job closing out races and when necessary winning some races. Teams are are definitely gunning for us.

“We need to come together as a team. I told them they have to have a little bit more grit and get a little tougher. They need to get comfortable feeling slightly uncomfortable going fast. It’s going to be a matter of pride. I think it will come down to the men’s and women’s B relays.”
