ERCOLI'S THOUGHTS:  

  • "The team did some amazing things this meet and hands down had one of our strongest showings ever at the start of a season. The women closed the gap between some of the best athletes in collegiate synchro, which is exactly what we are looking to do. We had a great weekend of competition all around."
