NAMPA, Idaho - Post-Meet Quotes
Louisiana Tech Head Coach Gary Stanley
"We had a courageous and focused team effort today with Kamelia battling and everyone running as hard as they could. I have a lot of pride in this team right now. I was very pleased with the intensity today."
"You always like to win the last two events of the day, the men's and women's 4x400m relays. Our women already had the meet won and they could have coasted, but they pushed as hard as they could. I am thrilled for our young ladies."
On third consecutive Freshman of the Year honor:
"That shows that we are recruiting well. It shows five years later, in the case of Antoinette Cobb. We are bringing good people in and preparing them well for the rigors of college competition. I have to applaud our assistant coaches for teaching them well and instilling the right amount of confidence in our student-athletes."
On the men's team:
"Almost everyone we brought to the meet except for two ended up scoring for us this year. We had a good performance; we just didn't have enough people. However, we gain a few more bodies outdoors and that should give us a chance to win the outdoor title. We are more suited towards the outdoor season. Al Fullwood, what a great day he had today, along with Billy Ray Walker."
"I'm excited about what we can do outdoors. Two years ago, we scored fewer points at the indoor meet than we did this year and we nearly won the outdoor title."
On Antoinette Cobb setting the school record in the 60m hurdles:
"It couldn't have happened to a better person. I hope her time is high enough in the national ranks to get her into the NCAA meet. She is the epitome of everything you could want in a student-athlete: She nearly has a 4.0 [grade point average], she is preparing to go to medical school and she has battled her own personal health issues to get to this point. She is a conference champion and was one-hundredth of a second away from being a double conference champion today."
