Coach Dave Gerlach’s Comments: “Beautiful day for racing at the conference meet. We knew coming in that Northville being ranked #2 in Division 1 was pretty much untouchable. The team we had our sights on to beat was Brighton. Our girls ran a terrific first mile and were in a position to do some damage. However several of our top seven really faded in the last two miles. As the head coach, I am responsible to have these girls ready to roll and I am looking at our past week of workouts. I am not one to make excuses, but we had a few illnesses in the past week and a major distraction after a transportation issue had us arriving over 2 1/2 hours before our race. We looked a bit lethargic and unfocused at race time. Even with that, Reagan (9), Olivia (9) and Gabby (11) ran terrific races. Reagan is “tough as nails” with the tenacity of an upper classman. Olivia is another freshman that has worked hard and made a huge impact already. Gabby ran the race I have been waiting for. Gabby ran a bit more aggressive first mile and competed with passion through the finish. They were on a mission and had that look in their eye of success desire. As a coach I have been disappointed in our varsity consistency. We will have 3 girls run great one week and then 4 the next. If I could wave a magic wand and have all seven run terrific on the same day, we have the potential to be a very good team. The JV came to compete today. Scoring the JV race, Salem would have won. There were many personal best races today, including a terrific race by senior Jessica Hughes (19:52.5 – 2nd Place). We had three JV runners take off with that look in their eye for success. I was extremely happy with the way our JV competed today and very happy for Jessica on a career PR after working so hard over the past 4 years.”
