COACH NATE WOLF SAID

“The ladies raced well today.  We were missing our top two runners from the last meet and that showed in the team results.  Several ladies stepped up to lead the team in the absence of Nicole Slater and Justine Van Zee.  Audrey Brooks led the team for the first time followed by Julia Bos with her best team finish as well.  Erica DeSchiffert ran fourth on the team in her first college cross country race.  The depth and experience gained in this race will benefit us as we return to full strength in the next few weeks.”
