Red Rocks receive No. 5 seed, afternoon session

Published: Monday, April 12 2010 11:16 p.m. MDT

The whole night changed Utah's attitude about the postseason. Megan Marsden noted that there were a number of former Ute stars in the audience Saturday, and some went to dinner with the team after the meet. It was a proud moment for current team members to be able to "stand tall" in front of the alums.

"When they rise to the occasion in front of those people, I think it's very gratifying to this current team — to feel like they lived up to the tradition of this program. Last week when Greg asked what was worrying them, one of the said living up to the expectations of what this program is about.

"I know they wear that very heavy, but I don't think they come to this program blind. Some of them come for that reason, and with it comes quite a bit of pressure."

But now that pressure is off. Utah qualified for the 35th straight year to the national championships — the only team to have ever done so — and now it can just go to Gainesville, Fla., and do what its thing.

"I just want them to go out and compete aggressively, and hopefully we do the best we can do and let the outcome take care of itself and feel good about ourselves if we just go compete well," said Greg Marsden.
