Olympic Conference Recap

A cool brisk Friday saw the entire Olympic Conference gather at Rowan's west campus for this year's Conference Championship. A little different than other varsity races, this race allowed us to enter twelve runners instead of the traditional seven. Going into the meet, we knew Shawnee was the sure favorite to win the meet with second likely being either us or Seneca. When the dust settled, Seneca edged us out by three points for second place. The girls certainly raced though. All twelve saw their fastest time of the season, with ten of those being lifetime personal bests. The third place finish secured the American Divisional title since Shawnee and Seneca are not in the American Division.

Battling the Storm

I once heard someone say one of three things is true. You are either: 1. Heading into a storm 2. In the storm 3. Or coming out of the storm Which ever situation you are in right now, it goes without saying that who you surround yourself with will often dictate how you respond to the given situation. Not only is this true in life, but it carries over to the athletic field. If you surround yourself with those individuals that are negative before the pain even sets in, how much harder is it to stay positive? If you are around those individuals that give up at the the moment things start to get uncomfortable, how easy is it to give in? It is easy to be gung ho when there is no pain, but it is wh
