Head Cross Country Coach Justin Leonard commented, “We are proud of how our kids competed this weekend at both meets. It was nice to finally run against some other schools and unfamiliar competition. It’s been a long summer and we are just excited to get the season started. We are looking forward to see what this year holds for our Dragons.”
