Head Coach Zach Whitkanack...
"I was very happy with how both teams ran. The hard training has paid off. Zoe and Kayla had a phenomenal race up front. Our pack behind them was really strong as well."
"Guido had a great race out from for the men's team. Our number two through five had a great race as well. Definitely the best race on the men's side since we started the program!"
"The race went really well. The course was a fast course and the weather was perfect. All of my teammates ran amazing as well. I'm excited to see how much we keep improving as a team for the rest of the season!"
"I had a tough mindset going into today. I felt well prepared and ready to race all week. Got out controlled and ran a consistent race and felt tough the entire time."
