Coach Bailey helped the girls strategize the difficult course prior to the game.

“The course was very difficult and I didn’t have a plan going into the race, but I paced myself with my other teammates and pushed until the finish to have a great race,” sophomore Allison Kane said. Kane went on to place 15th with a time of 24:27.

Junior Natalie Hill pushed herself during the meet and placed first with a quick time of 20:15.

“I felt great about how I did today because I ran really strong the whole race,” Hill said.

The girls are going to be preparing throughout the week for their upcoming invitational on October 7 at 9:00 a.m. at Heritage Park.
