"I was happy to see the boys advance to sectionals," CMSF head coach Mike Eisenhauer said. "I was proud of all the kids' effort because they ran in a driving rainstorm and there were several places on the course where the water was standing several inches deep.  Even though Abby did not make it to sectionals, I thought she ran really well."
