Being the coach for both is definitely more of a demand, but it is a necessity. I am here one way or another. So we might as well have a cross country [team] so we can start to build a program with a balanced [track and field] team.

We literally just found out about this as school was starting. We are a quarter of the way through the season and we have only had two practices. Our biggest challenge is getting the meets under out belt.

The work ethic and effort this team puts forth is great. We have an extremely young team, but the few veterans that we have are stepping up and becoming standouts. Overall that is creating a better team feel, and they have been doing great.

As a runner, the mental toughness Steven has is amazing.
