"This is truly a team effort and I am proud of these guys for coming though in the last two miles of the race.  After finishing 5th at So Cal, Coach Wilson and I believed that this group could step it up at state and surprise the field." Coach McCarron 

Michael Simpson and Joshua Silva led the team and earned All-American honors with Michael Simpson finishing 7th (20:33) and Joshua Silva finishing 10th (20:36).
