    COACH COLE ON CONNER: "While more a track runner, Connor is a freshman who has some tools that can be applied to cross country running with further developed aerobic strength. He has time early in his career to build that strength, while not abandoning the speed that made him one of the top high school distance runners in Colorado last year."
