TJ's Take: These are quotes from head coach Tom Johnson about theconference dual meets against Air Force (men and women) and New Mexico(women) this past weekend at Colorado Springs, Colo.

Women- "We were very fortunate to pick up both victories on the women'sside. We had to leave our two of our top swimmers at home because theywere ill so that left us shorthanded, but the rest of the team steppedit up and we were able to get by both Air Force and New Mexico today ina meet that shouldn't have been as close as it ended up."

Men- "The men were shorthanded as well today, but that's no excuse forwhy we didn't swim better today. We still need to learn how to get morefocused for meets like this on the road. The Air Force men were reallyup for this one since we beat them last year in Laramie."
