“We had all been working super hard these [past] couple of weeks [before] conference so it was cool to see our hard work pay off,” J.D Suarez, junior said. “Our state team was pretty close, and we had been getting excited for the meet with team bonding activities, like decorating team jeans. All the excitement and support from within helped carry us through state and perform at our best.”
