"I'm very happy with our team, and it was a fantastic meet," coach Wesbrock said, "with every athlete contributing. We went against a team that is much larger than us. Our superstars stepped up, but I'm most impressed with the other kids that we haven't seen as much step up for us. Emma Mohr was huge for us, those fourth and fifth place finishes matter for us.
