Track / CrossCountry Booster Club
Best / fastest race from a West girl's team at state. EVER.
Lowest point total ever. Would have been podium for the last 20 years.
In virtual meet all class, we rank #6 vs #22 last year.
40 degree temps and calm winds made for fast running.
> How do Haley, Izzy and Caroline place better at state than they did at region?
> How does Rachel Murray consistently pass people at the end of big races?
> How does Ava go from a mid pack JV runner to a huge factor on our best state team ever?
> How does Ashley start the season limping and end up 20:45 on the monster state meet course?
> How does Rachel run herself into near collapse at state 2 years in a row and finish every time?
> This ONLY happens when our girls begin to believe in themselves and in each other. Team not time. THAT is XC.
> 6th or better for last 6 years is some kind of consistency.
> Pretty obvious who the best teams are. If we do the right things, starting this Winter, gotta like our chances in 2019!
> Ladies. Let's focus on getting stronger in the off season and being consistent healthy runners. That's the key.
