From Coach Huntington:

We had a fantastic meet at the Grand View Viking Invitational. This was a very important meet for both the men's and women's teams here at Southwestern. We needed to see if we could come off of three weeks of increased mileage and a really fast course at Augustana and compete at the level we need to be at as the season crosses the half way mark. We have had some tremendous growth lately and this meet was a big test for us both physically and mentally. Ewing Park is a very tough course. There are several large hills with a lot of sharp turns over uneven ground. It is not a speed course and the competition was very good with a nationally ranked team in the field and several colleges who will contend for their conference championships.
