I don't care what anybody's doing it's our turf and we know how to win." On Confidence in anchor: "I know emily has the kick. She opened up a little bit but I was still pretty confident that Emily could run her down."

On Mindset: "I was definitely relaxed. All the girls that were out there before me were out there being really tough and for me to not to give that same toughness would have been a shame." On Most Confident Point In The Race: "Coming down the stretch. She (Stanford Anchor) was looking really strong but I knew I had to give it everything I had."

On Leading Off: "I was just thinking about lead-off leg so, if I put us out it's not going to look good for the future legs. I just really wanted to go out there and hand off as close to the lead as I could."

3rd Leg - Villanova
