"The goal has been and always will be to win a Conference Championship; we will get there with a strong summer running commitment, dedication to the team, & a love for the sport of running!"


“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” – Muhammad Ali

"If opportunity doesn't knock... build a door!" - Milton Berle
