Both Catagnus and Girolamo expressed the high hopes by the team and are hoping their tight knit “family” will pave the way for success this upcoming season.
Catagnus commented on the consistency from meet to meet needing improvement, however, “The seniors on the team are looking to finish the season strong,” Catagnus said.
