Must be Longhorn week over at USA Swimming. Read the Madison Cox feature here.
“College has also taught me about balance, and happiness is a big
component of that,” Cox said. “So you have parts that almost catch you
off guard, where the light shine through and you are so happy.”
A lot of that happiness comes from pushing herself to do things she has
never done, and to embrace new challenges, which includes making new

4. The Longhorns have quite a special place in swimming under
you two -- what does all that history and the NCAA titles you have been a
part of winning and creating mean to you?
Kris: Most of what has happened here is because of Eddie.
Through Eddie, I have patterned the way I coach and teach to be much
like him, though certainly I have -- and with his encouragement --
developed in my own way as well. As far as winning, our goal truly has
never been to win a National Championship. The goal is for each
individual on our team to improve every year. If we have the right blend
of people and we do improve, then we are in the mix for a National
Championship. But we preach weekly if everyone does their best and we
end up 10th or 12th, we will shake hands with all the teams that placed
higher than us and we will be very, very proud that we did our best.
For the second straight year, Scott Scofield has volunteered to compile and post the high school state meet call-up lists for swimmers, coaches, and parents interested in finding out before the UIL posts their official list.
Thanks in advance for providing Scott with results and support.
Here's the site where he'll be posting that info (along with some other meet results):
