LAST TIME OUT
Two weekends ago the team had a split squad with athletes competing in both the Pepsi Florida Relays and the Ohio University Cherry Blossom Invitational. The team broke three school records and won two events.
The three school records broken were the 4x800 meter relay, the distance medley relay, and the shuttle hurdle relay. Barkley Castro, Andrea Porter, Mary Zulauf, and Madeline Armstrong broke the 4x800 meter relay record with a time of 9:11.10.
Head Coach Jeff Small on returning to action
“I hope that they’re anxious to get back at it. The weather is supposed to be really nice and we’re looking forward to some good competition. It’s going to be good to get back on track.”
On breaking three school records last time out
“A couple of those records were pretty old. It was great to get them off the books and get some new and better times.”
