COACH WOLF SAID
“The women raced very well. We had several new faces in our scoring seven, with Taylor Anema being the first new face and first Defender to cross the line. Jordan DeGroot (Bos) has been a steady senior presence in practice and showed that leadership throughout the race finishing second for the team, helping Taylor and Jessica Kampman have great success in their first collegiate races. We hoped the women could develop great depth over the course of the season and they showed that potential this weekend.”
Dordt is scheduled to run at the Morningside Invite on Saturday, September 19.
