COACH WOLF SAID
"Our men’s team raced strong again this meet. Jacob Vander Plaats and Joe Anderson ran great races leading the men’s team. The men raced over six minutes faster, as a team, than they did a month ago on the same course. We are very excited for this group as they head into the last regular season meet of the season in two weeks at the Seminole Valley Stampede."
