Coach's Corner
  • Head coach Christine Kloiber: "Our women's team this year has a really nice piece of synergy and we've always performed best when that camaraderie is there. They're also a pretty sharp squad and understand that the season is a process; that we use every experience as a learning experience and we can't PR every meet. With a little bit of rest, they'll be eager and very ready when we go to Lehigh."

Up Next
  • Niagara will have the next two weekends off from competition prior to the Paul Short Invitational in Bethlehem, PA. The women's 6k will begin at 1 p.m.
