"The girls had a very tough meet today," said Stroudsburg coach Peter Vernon.
"The rest of the girls in the league are getting so much better and a lot of credit has to be given to them because without the other girls in this league, we wouldn't be as good as we are.They push us to make ourselves better, so a lot of credit has to go to them for everything we've been able to accomplish."
Stroudsburg won the team title a year ago as well.
"It's great to be able to have the opportunity to coach such great girls," Vernon
Both Patascher and Vernon
expressed a similar desire to use the district meet as a means to validate the legitimacy of the MVC as a swimming power.
"It's going to be great," Vernon
said of the district meet.
