NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It's been over a month since the Vanderbilt women's swimming team has seen action in the pool, but the 'Dores are ready to go after returning from a week long training trip to Delray Beach, Fla., Sunday.
Though Head Coach Jeremy Organ'steam got to soak in the sun, catch a Nashville Predators game and watch the VU football team capture their third-straight bowl win, the purpose of the trip was to train - and train they did.
"I think we had a really good trip," said Organ. "It's a long week from a swimming standpoint. The girls swam twice a day for two hours plus getting in dryland work every other day. It is good to have a week of training where your focus is strictly on swimming -- you don't need to worry about working and class work."
Vanderbilt continued its tradition of traveling over the break, heading back to the Sunshine State, after spending last winter in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The Commodores return to Nashville looking ahead to the January 18 Senior Day meet against West Florida and Liberty.
"After having the past few weeks to train I think we are in a really good spot looking ahead," Organ said. "The senior meet is a time to give the seniors the spotlight, but it will be good for the team to get back into racing."
