American Fork Grass Relays today and I'm thrilled with how my team did. My girls ran over 5 minutes faster than last year's Alta team and my boys ran 54:38 (10 mile relay, 5 legs of 2 miles each w/30 hay bales to jump) which is the fastest Alta time ever at this meet. We finished 7th overall, up from 10th last year. As an example of how fast Utah XC is getting, our time today would have won this meet in 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 and been 2nd in 01 and 08.

We also beat every team in our region easily, including both Bingham and Copper Hills, who both beat us last week at Highland.

Very solid. It looks like you have a more cohesive group of runners at closer to the same levels.
