Coach Dave Gerlach’s Comments:
“Wow – The temperature dropped by 20 degrees overnight and the cold, windy conditions did not slow these girls down. Its Homecoming weekend and these girls needed to get home to shower and get ready for the dance. I think they used that as motivation in our last invitational of the year to race fast. They did just that. After a dominating performance in the JV race lead by winning sophomore Samantha Rousseau in 21:14. The varsity came out ready to rumble. From the gun, Olivia took the lead and never gave it up running to victory in 18:31.3. Freshman Isabell Kulick finished 2nd in 18:31.8 and sophomore Marissa Henry finished 3rd in 18:34.7. Kiersten McBride (14th) and Grace Landon (18th) rounded out our scorers. Our triple threat of Millen, Kulick and Henry were dominant today. They were impressive in the way they worked together and raced with such determination. These three work so hard in practice and that daily work ethic continues to show the benefits.”

Next race is Thursday at the KLAA Conference Finals at 3:30pm at Huron Meadows Metropark
