“I’m really excited about the format that we have with just female teams and that we are packing it in to a meet that should only last about three and a half hours,” head coach Jeff Small said. “People can come out and watch and be home, it’s not like an all-day affair. I’m anxious to see the shape the kids are in versus when they left after the Ohio dual meet.”
