Coaches Quote

  • “Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, the results don’t reflect the effort, dedication and hard work our team members put in,” said Alex Smolka FAU’s head coach. “Today wasn’t a great day for us. We will learn from today and the experience will make us stronger. I’m very proud or our team members.”
  • “We did have a few bright spots,” added Smolka. “Deja qualified for finals in the 100m dash, Leila set a new PR in the 200m dash and Mar’Rhea came very close to her PR in the long jump.”
