From the Coach – Interim Head Coach Beau Theriot
“As we finish up the academic semester, we are excited to see what the team can do competing. We are very thankful for the opportunity to compete during these times and a big part of that is due to the athletes protecting our bubble. It’s been a long time for a lot of these athletes since they have competed last, but from our intersquad and time trials this year I’m expecting big things and I believe we will have an impressive start.”
