Villa For Life Meet Recap
Posted On March 19, 2017 | By Toni McKee
The Lady Camels placed first in the Villa For Life meet this weekend. All proceeds from this meet benefit the American Cancer Society. We know that when it gets colder as the day goes on, it can be mentally challenging, but our Camels proved they can survive outside of the dessert and that cold, wind, or drizzle won’t slow us down. We saw some outstanding performances throughout the day despite the unfavorable conditions. We have spent months working diligently to prepare and build strength; yesterday showed the results of those efforts. While we have some fine-tuning to do, of course, we are right on track for where we need to be at this point.

3200 meter relay (Reagor, Meiser, Florimonte, Kavanaugh) -1st
