"The men competed well at this meet and continued to show depth, I look for this young team to improve each week as the freshman continue to adjust to the new race distance. Having nine runners under 30 minutes on a course like Centre's is huge and we look forward to seeing what this team can do at a race like Greater Louisville or Sand Shark," said men's assistant coach Shawn Jakubowski
