Quote of the Meet
- "Taylor has worked hard all season and the results are showing," said Assistant Coach Nick Schneigert. "She has broken the 1.50m mark several times this year, and today she was very close to breaking her own school record in the high jump once again. I couldn't be any more proud of her accomplishments, as every week, she competes to win. Also, the warm weather has paid off a lot. We had personal records set in our other events, and our athletes did an amazing job."
- Tech will compete at Concordia University Chicago next Saturday at 10:30 a.m.
