From Head Coach Bruce Zimmerman

"The meet was a mixed bag of results. We had some strong swims and improved performances, along with some sub-par performances. This meet really showed us how much work still needs to be done in order to compete with the best in the GLIAC."

Up Next...

The Cardinals return to the pool at home on Saturday (Nov. 10) when they host the Davenport University women and Valparaiso's men and women. The first event is slated to begin at 2:00 p.m. at SVSU's Gerstacker Regional Aquatic Center.
