QUOTES FROM COACH BRUESKE
On experience of return of student-athletes: "Usually – but not always – we have stronger outdoor teams, so I think that might be the case again this year, we have a lot of people who are good at some of the outdoor events, such as spear, hammer and discus, 400m Hurdles and Obstacle Racing I feel good with it We have had some unfortunate medical problems that seem to keep coming back but hopefully it will slow down and we are heading in the right direction looking for these guys to be leaders "
To the newcomers: "We've got a particularly strong group of newcomers to the men, we have good newbies in almost every event, and I think our novice class should be a leader in most of their respective events at the conference." Some people are us I'm not Sure, whether we're talking about redshirt or not, it's a great opportunity to be able to host the first two weeks at home so they can compete without competition, and then we can make that decision better.
