XC Shoutout

I just got back from Portland, where I watched both the men's and women's cross country teams DESTROY at nationals. Hillary Holt took first place by 20 seconds, and the women's team took a very, very close second as a team. The men also had an incredible race, with Greg Montgomery taking second. It was so worth the drive up to see my teammates do so awesome. I'm so proud to even run with them. Seeing them be awesome was definitely worth the trip, and that alone would have been worth the drive. I also got to spend a little bit of time in downtown Portland, eat some VooDoo doughnuts, sleep in my own bed at home, and hang out with some awesome people. It was a very successful trip!

If you see a Yote, make sure you high five them and tell them that they're awesome. Because they are.
