2014 NCAA Division I Men's Swimming & Diving Championships Day 2 Quotes



March 28, 2014


Opening Thoughts
Assistant Coach Josh Udermann
Both Uvis and Paul did a great job this morning racing against a very talented field in events that again got faster than last year. For Uvis to drop time and move up in his event is very tough to do at the national level. Paul was just off his best time in the 100 backstroke and I think that sets up well for tomorrow, showing that he has great front end speed to get out in his 200 backstroke tomorrow. I am excited to see both race tomorrow morning in arguably their best events.

What did you think about your race this morning?
Sophomore Uvis Kalnins
My race this morning went well, it's always a good thing to go a best time.

Junior Paul Le
There was a couple things I could've fixed but overall I am still happy with how I did.

What's something you noticed about the rest of the field in your event?
Swimming is getting faster every year. And seeing the top athletes in the country compete, I saw that I have plenty of things that I should improve.

Everyone did great and I'm happy to see that they did! Especially my teammate Uvis!

What's something you are looking forward to tomorrow in your races?
The 100 free is one of my favorite races and definitely one of my best events and it also is the shortest distance I'm racing in during this meet.

[I need to] just stay in my own game, don't change the way I race like I did today. Stay focus and cheer my teammate Uvis on.
