      So what are people’s thoughts – a new team, three new coaches and a lot of new faces. Too many variables to make any predictions in my mind except this – this will be the deepest CCIW meet in years (maybe history) – it looks like almost four schools will have full teams. This has too be good for the conference.

      Your thoughts?

      Yeah should be exciting. I look for Carthage to get a medley in this year, with the addition of Drake. I think Cramer gets in this year, with a big year. IWU returns a lot from last year, so they should be better.
