“The competition at this week’s meet was very similar to our last meet, which was hosted by Briar Cliff University,” said coach Molly Struve. ” We ran against mainly private, 4-year schools who have excellent running programs.
“Brittany really stepped it up this week and dropped her personal best time by over 45 seconds. She ran a very smart race and is ready to compete at the Regional meet next weekend.
“On the men’s side, our team is doing a great job of pacing each other. They all finished within three minutes of each other, which means they are each able to see one of their teammates close ahead of them during the entire race.
