Coach Henry Phelan was pleased as many girls ran personal-best times and scoring came from a number of athletes.

"We're a bit like the Celtics right now as we have a couple key runners out with minor injury but we had balance in most events and all the girls ran hard with many running well," he said.

When asked about the team's performance, Phelan was philosophical.

"The injuries to key performers (captain Katlie LaScaleia, captain Mary Kohler, Sam Cook, Ariel Keklak) really hurt us in our relay depth which are usually very strong events for us," he said.
