On how this season has been...

COACHES QUOTES
Men's Champion
Texas Coach - Bubba Thornton

On today's performance...
"It's about the team. We have great performers on this team, but no individual performance is going to overshadow this championship for this group of guys. We're in a very historical building, that integrity of track and field in this building is unmatched. For us to bring our team up here and win the championship, it's one of my biggest moments. This is a special group. Everybody thinks that it is just automatic down in paradise, but these guys step up each year. The expectation is high, they understand what were doing. This is a special group."

Women's Champion
Texas A&M Coach - Pat Henry

On defending the indoor title...
"This is our fourth year with this staff here. We were fortunate enough to win it last year. That was a young group, and this group is a little more mature, and so this was a great meet for us this weekend."
