“The divers were brilliant, dominating both boards and keeping us in the meet,” head coach Rob Clayton said. “We won just four events in the meet. Steffen Mount was part of all four wins. He had a very nice day, winning the 50 free, 100 fly and being a part of both relays. Wyoming was just too much for us today, winning all the close races. When we needed something to happen, they had an answer. We need to get a lot better. We see probably the best teams in the conference the next two weeks with Wyoming and Grand Canyon. We need to be better if we are going to beat Grand Canyon next week.”
Air Force travels to Phoenix, Ariz., for a pair of dual meets against conference rival Grand Canyon, Nov. 3-4.
