Breaux Previews Non-Conference Meet
“This is a really good opportunity to build off of our meet last week,” head coach D-D Breaux said. “Getting back in the PMAC is always exciting and we know there will be a great crowd to cheer us on. We want to go in there and execute and hit like we know we are capable of.”
Finnegan. Edney One of Best All-Around Duos
