Dahlberg said, “We’re excited for the upcoming season and getting back to fall cross country. We return all of our women and men who competed in cross country last year and add a great group of incomers.
"Last year’s young group gained a lot of needed experience and are ready to capitalize on that growth. We’re traveling to some very competitive meets to help prepare for the championship portion of the season and will most likely add a few local meets to provide additional opportunities.”
