"Our times were higher than at our last meet, which was expected," head coach Garry Anderson said. "This was due to the terrain we raced on. There were tough hills, winding, hilly wooded areas with roots and rocks, and some pavement and concrete to run on. This made for some tough footing and running. The competition was tough again as we faced Northeast Dubois, Bloomfield and Bloomington North -- all are ranked and provided challenges for all the girls."
