GREENSBORO- Stanford sprint stars Simone Manuel and Lia Neal stick together on campus, in practice and apparently in NCAA finals.

Lia Neal looked to be in fourth under the flags but willed her way to the wall to take second with a 47.13.

Here the good friends and Stanford teammates chat with Swimming World about pushing through the burn, feeling the energy the fans brought to every session, and their outstanding relay showings this weekend.
