Our theme this year was "We run with PAIN - Positive Attitude Instead of Negative". This team really embraced maintaining a positive attitude during practice and meets and were successful posting tremendous results. As a team this season, the 20 person squad posted 48 ATB shattering an astonishing 51 minutes and 35 seconds during one season off former times. We added two new meets this year and ran on new courses for both conference and district so upper classmen only had four opportunities to break course PR (personal record). In addition, none of the freshmen posted 5K prior to this year so they could not break PR this season. Regardless, the remaining 13 athletes broke 24 PR carving 52 minutes and 28 seconds off former times. We may not have gotten to the state meet but with screaming results like this I am very honored to have coached this team this year. Great heart, grit, focused and desire to do it with PAIN!
