Coaches for both teams felt that their team did well and kept themselves motivated. The girls’ track coach, BJ Tomanek said, “We had a lot of Girls preform well on a cold night with very little competition to keep them motivated.” The boys’ track coach, Jay Puffpaff, shared, “Total team effort; the athletes showed up and competed hard doing what was necessary to bring home the victories.”

Monika Borie, a top scorer last night, shared, “I think that last night was a good meet for all of us. We did well despite the weather. I am looking forward to our invitational at home Friday, April 16.”

Many boys’ and girls’ runners are looking forward to Friday’s invitational at home. They are going to have nine schools there. It will be the biggest event so far in either teams’ season.
