Comments from Coach Bill DeVoe  ” We had a solid performance  by the whole team- three races in five days,

Not only did they race three challenging races but they raced their fastest race of the week in their last performance of the week. They are learning what it means to let their best do what it can do.

We raced at Ettrick on Thursday, The coach from G-E-T is a bit of a cross country stat person. He informed me that Eli’s time of 16:27 was the third fastest  time ever raced on their cross country. They have been racing on that course for the past forty five years !!!! How cool is that ..”
