“As a team it’s a bit frustrating, we got off to a great start in September and then injuries crept in and for whatever reason we didn’t carry that great start through the rest of the year”, said Roy. “But now we regroup, take the positives and build off them as we head into the track season.”
The Huskies improved off their 21st place team-finish in 2015. The season consisted of first place finishes in the UB Stampede on Sept. 16 and in Warwick, R.I. for the Rothenburg Run on Oct. 14.
