From Head Coach James Snyder

  • “The women have been training really well together over the past few weeks and we’ve got nearly our full team back together and 100% healthy. Since mid-September, it’s been our goal to just get better both individually and as a team every week. That progress has been evident in training, and I’ll be excited to see it translate into racing this weekend.”
