Ryan Ford: Today’s meet was rough. It’s a difficult meet, not because of the course but because of the heat. I think we all did good, even though our times weren’t great. Our first-time varsity girls did great, especially in those conditions.
Anna Windels: Bagley has always been notorious for the heat. It makes for a very tough race. Running in the hot, humid air can be challenging both physically and mentally. It takes a lot of strength to push through a race like that. I think our girls have that strength. Some of our junior high girls moved up to varsity today and they met the challenge head on. I’m very proud of how far the team has come, and as a senior I feel I am leaving the Broncos in good hands.
