COACH WOLF SAID
“We have felt the momentum building for the men, over the course of the first half of the season and today was another step in the team’s development. As a whole, they went out aggressive and were able to move very well the last mile of the race. Caleb Drake led the men with a second place individual finish. This was the first race with all of our seniors healthy and we look forward to seeing their increasing impact the rest of the season.”
