Quoting Women's Head Coach Judy Bogenschutz: " We are really starting to concentrate on Pre-Nationals on October 16. With the upcoming Murray Keating Invitational, we are looking to go to Maine, win and come back to prepare ourselves a big couple of months. We are struggling with some illnesses, however, we are learning to adapt to those situations. We are getting those individuals better and back into running. The girls that improved their times this past weekend have been doing a great job. They had a good summer of training and the results are showing."
