Coach Helgeson said "I'm thrilled with how this meet went.† It was great to see those who worked so hard all year get rewarded.† This is a group of runners who love to run.† Penny and Kristen have some high school experience to draw from but injuries and other commitments held them back and the rest of the team is new to the sport in the last year or two.† To have them run so well and achieve what they did was above and beyond my expectations.† This was a great end to a great year and I can't wait to see what the future holds for Lakeland College Cross Country."
