If you do not already have a place to stay in Grand Forks it may be difficult because the State Swimming & Diving meet is also there this weekend. Plus UND finishes off the men's hockey regular season at home on Friday and Saturday.
UND is also the gathering spot for the best swimmers & divers. All of the heavy training is over, and now it's time to mentally prepare for the biggest meet of the year.
"One thing that I really like for them to do is just prepare the team because without that team that individual can't be competing at that state meet. So, what they do is I have my captain's and my seniors get everybody ready and that helps them in their individual races also," says head coach Alex Lucy.
"I just think about previous meets and I've gone there before," says senior Alex Teunissen. "I know it is my last one. It kind of makes me sad, but I've done it before and I'm just getting really excited mostly."
Austin won the 200 and 500 freestyle at the West Region meet. Century is the defending team state champion.
