COACH WOLF SAID
“The Defender women ran a very strong race in incredibly hot and humid conditions. The course and conditions made for slower times, but unlike track, cross country isn’t about times. The ladies were led by a very solid performance by Audrey Brooks. We placed four in the top-10 and six in the top-15. We held out two runners that were three and six at our last meet and look forward to adding them back in the mix for our next meet. The women’s team continues to improve and shows great depth.”
Dordt will be off until Saturday, October 7 when the Defenders run at the Briar Cliff Invite at McCook Lake, South Dakota.
