“I knew this morning we were going to be okay, I can tell by the way they are in the morning and just how they handle themselves,” head coach Felecia Mulkey said. “There was an eerie calm in the locker room, it was just our day. We decided and I told them that this is a national championship meet but lets not give anybody any power over defining us I don’t care what the scores are, every time lets walk off satisfied.”
