  • “Today was one of the greatest days in our program’s history, and it was a remarkable sight to see!  We traveled fifteen runners (9 men and 6 women), and for the first time ever and had at least one runner entered in every single running event on the docket. This included two relay teams and three field events. That accomplishment shows how much we have progress and growth in our program. I think the most amazing part of the day that nine of the fifteen athletes qualified for the NCCAA National Championships and they set or broke eleven records! You can’t ask for a better day at the track, especially at the season opener. I believe that if they continue to remain hungry and keep up with their training, this will be the best season yet!”
