Comments on the Meet:

Although the weather was a bit warm, and the season being just less than two weeks old, I'd have to say that I'm very impressed with both the boys and the girls with their efforts in today's time trials. When compared with last year's results, this event couldn't help but bring a smile to my face.

For the boys Ian Mallams came out of the chute with a big personal best and cut nearly a minute off of his time from last year's trial. Erik Anderson ran in the 17's for the first time in his career. Freshman Drew Coco gave us an indication that he will become a great one for us. Jacob Fern and Joseph Alexander both were able to show what an outstanding summer program can do for a runner. We had some great performances from just about every runner in the race.

The girls were just as impressive with five runners coming in under the 22-minute mark. That's better than we ended the season with last year, and the season's just beginning. Anne Danczyk ran a personal best time of 20:20 and Clare Miller had a great run finishing second in 21:06. I'd say it was a breakthrough race for Clare. She sees that she can run fast, and I think she'll find that she can go even faster as the season progresses.

Cassie Schell did a great job as she led newcomers Lauren Kuennen and Beth Donovan across the line to round out the top five. Having two new runners in the program like Lauren and Beth, a freshman, will certainly help us out this season.

We seem to have a lot of depth this year, both with the boys and the girls. It should lead to a really fun and successful season.
