“I’m sure when I’m retired and sitting on the beach somewhere, I’ll think about this as the greatest win, but these wins can be canceled out really quick if you don’t focus on the next one,” Miami coach Katie Meier said after the 350th victory of her career. “We’re on a mission and we just have to keep getting better.”

I’m learning so much from my coaches, from my teammates so all these accolades are great, but they’re extra.”
“It’s very closely mimicking life,” he said. “Points are played, and they’re either won or lost. That’s how I looked at it. You either win or you lose. Every time you step on the line, you have the opportunity to do it again. That’s the biggest thing I’ve learned from competing in tennis. That’s something I try to pass down to my players.”

“The bowls are interesting in that it’s the finish of this year and it’s kind of the beginning of next year,” Hurricanes coach Mark Richt said. “So, it’s very meaningful to our seniors. Obviously, it’ll be the last game that they’ll wear that uniform and wear the ‘U’ on their helmet.
