Coach's comments: "The Tiffin Carnival is the most competitive meet we'll race in before the post season and the girls really rose to the challenge. We had season or career PR's from all 13 of our girls who raced today, and I couldn't ask for much more when it comes to effort and determination. Collectively, we stuck to our race plan and made big gains in the second half of the race."

The Big Orange JV team placed 10th out of 25 teams in the Open DII/III race.

The Big Orange Boys finished 18th out of 41 teams in the Div. III A race at the Tiffin Carnival.

Coach Mike Louden said, "To exceed team expectations back to back weeks is a win for us heading into our off week. Going in we were looking for a top 25, maybe a top 20 finish and to finish 18 is a real momentum builder for us.

I thought our team collectively ran very well; especially Gavin Harrison who just seems to get better each and every week. Gavin is really narrowing the gap between himself and Nick and Noah, which will only solidify our top 3 going into the second half of the season. Solid performances were also turned in by Isaac Smith and Ian Maurice who set Season and Career PR's today."
