"As the new Head Coach to our cross country program, one of the best parts of Saturday morning was watching the team rally around one another to inspire and motivate every single runner," Head Coach Jennifer Brown said. "No man or woman was left behind and the camaraderie was heartening."
Added Brown: "Both the Varsity Boys team and Varsity Girls team did a fabulous job of competing together during their races. Running as a pack and finishing close together is the goal and they did this. Not to mention, they showed up as leaders and I can't ask for more than that."
