COACH COLE ON PRESTON: "Despite some setbacks out of Preston's control, he's continued to develop and have key benchmarks of significantly improved fitness and running during his first two years at USAFA. Now that we've worked some of the kinks out, Preston can have a great track season and continue to be a positive impact on our group throughout the entire year."
