COACH WOLF SAID
“The ladies were boxed in at the start of the race after starting on the inside position. They moved incredibly well throughout the second and third miles. They were tired after a long week of training. They finished in fourth place behind three NCAA Division II teams. We felt that was a great accomplishment for tonight.”
