“A night like tonight just keeps my confidence levels up and it’s making me realize I’m improving slowly,” Szoszorek said. “I can’t get down on myself, I just need to stay positive and hope for nights where I win my events.”

“Moving forward we have to continue to work hard, push ourselves, and be the best athletes we can be,” said Hertzfeldt on how the team could build off its strong night. “It’s always a good feeling when you have your teammates cheering you on from the sidelines. I feel if we continue to build each other up we will continue to be successful.”
