Player Reaction to the American Championship Race at Hammonasset Saturday Afternoon
“As a team, we placed 4 girls in the top 20, which is something to be very proud of. Although we fell short of our big goal, I see everyone growing with experience every meet and improving so quickly. It's been fun to watch such mighty improvement with such a young group!”
“This was the meet we have been focusing on all season. I was extremely proud that we accomplished our goal of finishing in the top 3 and also having our top 4 in the top 20 was great! I was also happy that I accomplished my own personal goal of finishing in the top 5. Today the individual title was a goal for many of the runners and coming in 3rd in a field of multiple top runners was exciting for myself.”
"The team ran faster than we did in Wisconsin so it was exciting to see everyone run a fast time and to have a few all-conference performances. I think we're peaking at the right time."
“It was a good team effort for the first American athletic conference and everyone put their best effort on the line!”
“In the beginning of the year I don't think any of us could have predicted where we have ended up as a team this season. Today everyone raced tough and worked hard. It was really exciting to be a part of.”
“I was proud of how the team competed with heart and raced tough today. We've all come so far this season and become so much stronger and better. It's really cool to see everyone progress together, and I'm excited about the direction we're heading in.”
