“Here we go again, hopefully, with a more normal year, and a more normal cross country season. I don’t know if we did this a year ago,” Wetmore said.

“But from March of ’20, until now, it’s been an unpredictable and unimaginable, strange year, culminating with a cross country with a ’20 cross country season in March of ’21; which none of us were thrilled with.

“Is that okay, Rach, to say that? But we weren’t totally thrilled with how we did in March of ’21. And so now we get to redo I guess, a few months later, six months later, anyway. We’re ready.

“Rachel was our number one runner throughout most of the fall last year, led our team in almost all of our races, so she will speak some. She’ll answer your questions about the women’s team. I can help a little bit with the men if you want.”
