Coach Dave Gerlach’s Comments: “Today was as strange as the weather. The girls were fired up and ready to compete for a County Championship. We had a window of opportunity in between storms and went out hard early. Some of the girls went out with a little too much enthusiasm and ended up struggling today in the second half. I applaud the determination and fire, but we need to run a little smarter if we are going to continue to be successful. Gabby really stepped up today and honestly saved our butt with her best race of the year. With six of our seven earning County medals and winning the County, we should be happy, but honestly we have much more team potential. We need to figure it out and there could be a great ending to our season. Another storm cell came in quick right before the start of the JV girls race, and the meet got postponed before ultimately being cancelled due to lighting. I felt pretty bad for our JV today because they were really fired up and wanted to go out and dominate the JV race. We are looking forward to our opportunity to race on Tuesday for the PCEP City Championship at Cass Benton.”
