The Eastern women's cross country team is going to be a force to be reckoned with this season. In addition to strong top returning runners, we also have promising upcoming freshman including Melissa Zablonski, Emily Sniffin, Kelly Labanara and Ashley Westman.
As a team, we are very excited for the prospects of this year. The dedication and camaraderie among the team showed tremendously through our difficult first two weeks of practice, as well as during daily team dinners.
Everyone survived last Friday's difficult course hosted by Fitchburg State University at Coggshall Park. Between a detour that added time to the course and the infamous hill, it was a struggle for everyone. But we as a team are determined to succeed.
We run Saturday at the Massachusetts Dartmouth Invitational at North Dartmoouth, MA.
