TOP QUOTE #1
"It was definitely a coming out party for us. We didn’t surprise ourselves. It was kind of what we expected, but the girls still had to go out and do it. It wasn’t a perfect day, but it was very good overall. Maggie looked super and Lindsey in her first race was really good. Peyton was really strong and Anna was excellent in her first big race with a PR." -- head coach Todd Harbour on the women's team
