Coach Foy had this to say about the weekend:
“This weekend was great opportunity to see how we are improving as a team against our region opponents. I am very proud of all our runners; we had a lot of events this week with homecoming and a delayed start to the week with hurricane issues, but our runners stayed focused, showed up and put in a lot of hard work to get some outstanding results. We are looking forward to another strong run this coming weekend as we go to Deerfield.”
