Coach Quam on the Oregon State Meet: "I was proud of the team. One of the things that we emphasized was just going after it and not holding back and I think that's going to be one of the keys at Pac-10s. We did have a couple people who went out and went after it and I think that's just a great learning experience, no matter what. Our girls did a great job going after it the whole meet and keeping it close the whole meet. Even if [Oregon State] came back and pulled the score a little bit further away, we were able to come back and keep it close and get it down to the last relay. It was exciting and I'm really proud of the team and I think they're going to be fighting for more going into Pac-10s with a close loss like that."
