“We love coming to this meet. Coach Donner and Bucknell have a great facility and they do a fantastic job setting this meet up to provide quality races,” said head coach John Kenworthy. “We’ve had a lot of success coming here to chase personal bests and championship qualifying marks. This year was no different. This meet has become the jumping off point for our season and right now it looks like we are ready to roll into May better than ever.
