“Every place mattered and everyone’s intensity and toughness allowed us to win by one point,” said head coach Bekah Shenk.  “We were able to run our absolute best on the night when it mattered.”

Sophomore Lauren Dibley paced the team with a 2nd place finish at 20:47.7. The top 5 Blazers ran 22:30.6 or better. The team was also successful in defeating Bethany Christian (16-41) and Westview (15-45), giving them a 3-0 record on the season in dual meets.
