Our competitive nature is becoming contagious in all areas of the team, from the sprints to the distance and field events. Things are starting to click, as we saw some big improvements from last week. We need to keep this forward momentum going into a big Hillsdale meet this upcoming weekend. I like the direction we are moving in."
