Recap?|? Complete Results

Josie Hahn, Vanderbilt (Day One leader)

(on the high jump)
"I got a little nervous at the two attempts missed at 5-8.5, and I luckily made the last attempt. My coaches told me it was luck that I made it and I thought it was too. My approach wasn't very good. I cleaned some things up and at the end it felt really good. I thought I could get 6-1 today, but after jumping 16 or so times I just couldn't get it."

(on leading after the first day of action)
"Today has been a really good day, hurdles didn't go well, but I had a (PR) in High Jump, and Shot Put and maybe the 200m so overall I feel really good about today."

Chelsea Hammond, South Carolina (Second Place after Day One)

(on her performance on the first day of action)
"I was disappointed in the shot put, I only threw 31 feet and I normally throw 39 feet so I knew I had to put a good effort into the 200 meters, and try to catch up. Overall, I am satisfied, I probably won't get a personal best this meet, but the most important thing is the points, so I am going to have to come out here and do the best I can for my team."

LaToya McBride, Ole Miss (Third Place after Day One)

(on her performance on day one)
"I am real proud of my performance today, I set a personal best in everything I needed to from the last time I competed in the heptathlon. I did better in the hurdles and high jump today, which helped me out a lot. I am hoping for a big day in the long jump tomorrow."

Maurice Smith, Auburn (First Place after Day One)

(on his performance on day one)
"I started off shakey because I have a small injury in my back that has been slowing me down. I am going to stay with it, I am done with the first day now, so I am going to go back to the hotel and relax and see how I feel tomorrow."

Trey Hardee, Mississippi State (Second Place after Day One)

(on his performance on day one)
"I didn't want to come out and put everything into the first event. I just tried to stay relaxed throughout. I didn't run what I wanted to in any event but the 400 (meters). I have great coaches, and they helped me stay calm and focused throughout this first day. The way I finished (in the last two events) is what I needed heading into tomorrow's events. I had not been pleased with my performance until the high jump, and that momentum helped me in the 400. To end on those two good notes is great."
