Mustang track coach Mark Napier described how the team placed.

“Our team crushed it, I didn’t think this was a scored meet but when I saw the results I realized how good our team is,” he said. “Our team may be young, but this only made me realize how strong we are, like we crushed IMG.”

Sophomore runner Emma Brooks added, “The meet was actually really fun, I talked with people that I don’t usually talk to and made new friends. Also, I was so happy to have an at home meet, the new track feels amazing compared to the concrete one we had, and it was overall a great meet.”
