The Lady Hornets traveled to O’Brien Park in Downers Grove to run against DGS and Morton. The girls followed our team strategy for the meet and ran in much better groups instead of being alone the whole race. The team running concept will be helpful for the remainder of the season. Sierra Carder came off a tough Peoria Invite weekend and still ran a personal season best (very close to a personal career best) time of 25:05.
