Coach Foy had this to say on the weekend:
“I am extremely proud of all our runners, they have put a lot of hard work in this season showing up to practice each day, running in the intense heat and always giving their best to improve daily. It is not easy to get up each Saturday morning over a 2 month period at 5am and be committed to giving your best, but each of our runners did this and this weekend was their reward for all their hard work and time they have put into this season”
