Excited much? Go Hawks! Go get em, Rob.

Congrats! Sweet 2-5 split, and Kramer is just killing it.

From Rob Murphy on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 13:27:35 from

Yeah, 2-5 great. 1-5 - not so much.

Kramer is really turning into something special.His goal today was to win the meet by a minute or more. I guess we'll take 56 seconds!

From dugco on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 13:30:30 from

Well clearly you need to tell Kramer to relax a bit if you want to improve that 1-5 split ;-)

From Rob Murphy on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 13:34:44 from

That would be ONE way to do it.

From Bret on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 13:36:18 from

Nice results - Kramer is a beast!

From allie on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 13:58:26 from

congrats, coach & team.

From Andrea on Tue, Oct 09, 2012 at 14:05:42 from

Awesome! Congrats to the team! Having those 4 guys working together and pushing each other at state is going to be critical for placing.

Wow! Sweet run, 15:22! That kid is so lucky to have a coach like you. Are his parents going crazy?
