When asked about his teams’ performances, head coach Reginald Dillon was pleased stating, “We improved in some key events this week. Our men and women’s hurdles, 60m, 200m, and 400m runners all had great meets. We also improved our times in our 4x400m relay teams. I’m looking forward to seeing these men and women get back in the weight room and continue training for the next meet.”
