Straight from the Coach's Mouth:
"Claire [Greineder] was the MVP for our squad this weekend," said head coach John Ostler. "She turned in two gutsy splits in Friday's relays, one right after the other. She's a gritty competitor and we're lucky to have her. The theme for the women this year has been experience. I'm glad we got some positive performances from all of our young athletes at their first New England championship."
* The meet marks the end of the most successful season in program history. PSU established ten new school records in 2018-19 while registering a program-best finish at the Little East Conference championships.
