Gina, Whitney, Grace and Emily all had season best times today. Grace cut 37 seconds off of her best time from the season, which also beat her lifetime best performance by a good 20 seconds. Emily's race was by far the best of her season, as she took 1:19 off of her previous best time. Sierra and Megan battled through sore legs to finish their 5ks and Ashley was just a few seconds away from setting a new PR.
But the story of the day was the last race of the season for four very special seniors. Whitney, Rachel, Bethy and Leah all fought their way through various injuries en route to finishing the final competition of their indelible careers. These girls have set the tone for this team for years and have all played significant roles in establishing the current culture, success and personality of this program. G-AXC has been in good hands under their leadership, and they have made immeasurable contributions not only to this year's team, but to future iterations of G-AXC as well. They will be sorely missed and always appreciated.
