"The kids did a real good job today," Georgia head coach Jack Bauerle said."We practiced in the morning in Athens and then got on a plane to Louisiana, so it's not like they felt like a million bucks. But they raced hard and they swam with a lot of character. It was a real solid meet. I am very happy with them."
"Overall, I was pretty happy with what we did today," Georgia diving coach Dan Laak said. "We are about where we should be right now. Chris has been working really hard and he was solid. Hannah was great, and she was really strong on 1-meter. I am real pleased with what she did."
