The squad earned a second-place finish our of 10 competing teams.

“This was a really good start to the season. In comparing the team times with 2009 and 2010, the men were a little better, and the women were very similar, almost identical, which indicates we’re where we want to be in terms of training,” said Coach Lane. “I’m pleased with how everyone ran.  We were very competitive with the other conference schools in the race, which is what we need to do to have a successful season.”

Next up for the teams is the Woody Greeno Invitational, co-hosted by Nebraska Wesleyan University and the University of Nebraska in Lincoln on Sept 17.
