COACH WOLF SAID
"It was a good night to get our season started off. The women’s team ran very well. We held out a few runners that we believe can have an effect in our scoring and were able to see the potential impact of our freshmen and sophomores within our pack. We look forward to the team progressing through the season and are very positive about the potential this team possesses. We are excited for both teams to race at near full strength next Saturday, September 9 and invite Defender Nation to come cheer at our home meet, the Defender Holiday Inn Express Classic. The ladies start the meet off racing at 10:00 AM with the men following at 10:45."
Dordt will host a cross country meet on its campus next week, September 9 beginning at 10:00 AM with the women’s race.
