Cross Country Assistant Coach Tom Witzgall ’98, attributes the fast times across the board to the offseason training as well as the training that the team has done in previous years.
“These guys have been training all year,” Coach Witzgall said. “Most of them have been training hard for the past four years.”
The whole team got outstandingly fast times at this meet, especially Braden with his time of 14:12.2.
“I got a [Personal Record] in the 3-mile by, like, a minute,” Braden said. “I’m pretty excited about it.”
