I’m confident that they will take what they’ve learned and continue to improve during the upcoming track season. We are all very proud of Allie and Michaela for how they competed during this race, this season, and during their careers up to this point at ACU. I have been extremely blessed to coach them for the last couple of years. They have made a long-lasting positive impact on our program and will continue to do so in the remainder of their senior season.”Leaders in the race!
