COACH WOLF SAID

The women had an excellent second meet of the year.  The women were once again led by Taylor Anema who was the top NAIA finisher behind four junior college women.  Jessica Kampman and Eden Winslow raced the strongest races of their careers, breaking 19:00 for the first time.  Bethany Ten Haken and Tiana Schroeder continued their strong year, moving very well over the last 3,000 meters of the race and closing the scoring five time gap to 1:06."
