“The team ran against some tough competition tonight.  David Baldwin had a great showing tonight.  We were missing several key contributors to the team night and it was evident, the other members of the team stepped up great and filled the spots.  It was great to see them running some races outside of their comfort zone,” boys coach Brandon Beltz
