Head Coach Kate Curran
"Today was a nice opportunity to run the 6K distance on a course just across town in an extremely well-run meet hosted by SUNY Canton. Cassidy Scott set the early pace on the trails she was familiar with from the high school state cross country championships that were held here. It was great to see both Cassidy and Georgia take home recognition with individual top-10 finishes."
