“It was so great to be back on the track and see everyone competing again. It was a great feeling and you could definitely tell how happy they were to be back in this type of competitive environment,” said Head Coach Aaron Lund.

“We have a strong team this year lead by incredible upperclassmen and surrounded by a group of talented, driven sophomores and freshmen. Today not only showed our leading talent, but also our depth. It takes a few meets every year to get back into competition shape, mindset, and race strategy. With that in mind, I think we had a great first meet of the season highlighted by many personal bests. I am really excited for this team to continue to build off of this moment in the next competitions.”
