Coach's Corner

  • Head coach Christine Kloiber: "Super proud all-around of the team. Not just today, but for the entire season. They're a tough bunch and they needed every ounce of resilience today. 33 degrees, snow and mud made for really difficult race conditions. They represented the university with poise and tenacity. Although we wish the weather conditions would have been friendlier, they put it all out there, which is all we ever ask."
