From Coach Stober

“We ended our season on a good note today. It's been a unique season. We went into our summer training with 11 women on the team. By the time our first race rolled around we only had eight. Two of which were injured the entire season...including one of our top runners. We ran every race this season with just five or six women. These ladies have been training consistently for over five months now. To do what we did with the numbers we had this season says a lot about our team. I'm thankful for this group of young women. They have made this season a memorable one for NGU XC."
