The coaching staff is really proud of the way everyone stepped up at Doherty on Friday! We thought it was our best meet of the season so far as more athletes on the TEAM contributed to our overall success than we have had all season. Winning 3 races, and taking runner-up in the 4th race is not easy to do. Have faith that your training is paying off right now when it matters the most, and that you are ready to run your best on Wednesday at Leagues!
