"I am very pleased with how we raced at Jamestown today," stated DSU Head CC Coach Ben Shroyer. "The weather once again provided us with some adversity, but the guys showed grit and competed well! Six of our eight guys set new personal records today. Trey had a breakthrough race today setting a new PR by 1:31. Our Top 5 had a :43 second spread which is nice and all eight men showed much improvement from their efforts at Griak. Our training is going well and the new guys are understanding how to race an 8k. It will be exciting to see how we will match up to an all NAIA field at the Mt. Marty Invite in two weeks."
