?Our returning national qualifiers looked real strong for us. Overall,I think we have a chance to field the best team we've had since I?vebeen here. I feel like our fitness level is very, very high right now.We've had a really solid fall of training, and the key now is to keep itgoing. I feel like our key people are on track to do some big thingsthis year.?
