We are honored to be the Meet of the Week. TCU's women have improved and the men have always been competitive. It will be the first Mountain West Conference meet of the season for our men. I have been impressed with TCU thus far this season. Their women knocked off CSU and the men have been strong as well. I am looking forward to a fast meet and a great environment on Saturday.
