John McDonnell Press Conference  NCAA Champio


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The following is a partial transcript of Arkansas head coach John McDonnell’s press conference regarding the 2003 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Sacramento, Calif., June 11-14.
Opening remarks:
We have 13 athletes going and we’ve had more before. Numbers don’t really make the difference. Auburn is tied with us and they only have nine guys going. It’s quality that makes a difference. We’ve got some quality, but it will be tough on those distance runners in the heat. But we can’t do anything about that. We just have to line up and see what we can do.
Some of our guys have been fighting injuries, but I think they’re all fit right now and hopefully we can get them to the line ok next week. We just have to see what happens. We have some areas where we can score some good points I believe. We’ll have to.
