They were very sick that day. It's unfortunate, but that can happen to any team on any given day...It would have been nice for them to have a better performance, but I thought they did well overall given the circumstances.
We need to add some more depth there though. We added some freshmen to the distance events so we have some fresh blood there and we're working hard and looking to improve there.
They're young and they're just enjoying the sport. They're just having fun with it and paying attention so I think more eighth graders will come out for the team. Pus, football players who see what great shape their teammates are in during fall workouts will want to come out too.
