1-5 Gap:  Amazing. Even without the top 2 guys, the gap is 1:45 and too large
5th out of 8 teams with 114 points; 56 runners

We failed to run as a pack (again). That was the primary goal for two miles and we failed to accomplish it. What is most troubling is that the attempt to pack it in and run together wasn't there. We must make a better attempt to lose ourselves in the team for the betterment of the team.

 Thompson 1 18:17* That race was worthy of 3 patches - good work

Casey accomplished one of the hardest feats in running and racing and that is to lead from the start to the finish. You guys ran well on a tough little course and half of you had personal bests which is awesome!
