COACH COLE ON SAMANTHA: “Sam stayed persistent throughout approximately two years of injury and saw her diligence pay off by running a personal best for 1500m at last spring’s conference championships, just missing making the final. She cut 20-seconds off her 1500m time over a three-week period with moderate running. Sam has been consistent over the summer and we’re looking forward to having her back in the fold during the upcoming cross country season.”
