COACH WOLF SAID
“The ladies ran real well. We had a few athletes that we held out last week that were able to come back and ran well and we were able to come away with a win and we were real excited about that. I think the ladies will continue to improve. We had some young athletes who are in the top-seven and we’re excited about that group.
