COACH COLE ON ANDREW: Someone that has quietly been progressing over the last few years, Andrew is ready to take another jump in his performance level. That should put him in a very competitive position on our team and in our conference. A very smooth runner, Andrew’s aerobic development is catching up to his ambition and it’s only a matter of time before he’s calloused, which will result in some very good race performances.
