“This is one tough team that wants to succeed so badly that they have traveled three Saturdays in a row, leaving at 5am to compete in some of the most competitive meets in the state.  This does produce an element of exhaustion for these athletes but they do it every week, putting forth their very best efforts in order to grow and develop into what they want to become individually and as a team.  Not only are the athletes committed to these early morning departures, but their parents have been supportive and involved in this process of development for these young runners. These parents deserve recognition for their loyalty and support.” Coach Mandy Godbee said.
