Freshman Logan Kerby on his first collegiate race:

“It was definitely a lot more fun than high school, and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season and improving my times.”

Senior Drake Seccurro on the team’s performance:

“It was a really good conscious effort from everyone. I’m really proud of the whole team for the way we ran today.”

Assistant Coach Caleb Bowen’s Reaction:

“I think everybody did a great job today. It was a really tough course with lots of bad footing. Overall, both the men and women did a great job. The freshmen in their first collegiate races all did a good job. If we continue to work hard like we have been we’ll continue to improve and become better runners.”
