Coach Herron said: "It was really an amazing day. We had great performance after great performance today. It was great to see our team battle and compete much better this week. There were so many of our athletes that stepped it up today. I was very proud of them. I think they are just starting to see what they can do together as a team. We will need that same type of drive in two weeks, when we go to EIU to compete for the Region 24 title. If they keep improving and stay focused, I like our chances of repeating as Region 24 champions."
