In Poppell’s Words…(On LSU)
“Give credit to LSU for an outstanding meet. They performed exceedingly well and took us wire-to-wire. That being said, I am so very proud of the eff orts of our girls and the way they fought throughout the two-hour contest in winning this meet. It has been a long time since we have beaten LSU, and we’re truly excited to be able to both see and enjoy the progress we are making as a team.”
