Team strengths: "We do have a great deal of returning runners, and we are fortunate to have a good mix of new, young runners, as well. I think our depth will help us this winter and as we get into the spring season."

Team Weakness: "I just think that we will be successful if everyone stays healthy and everyone continues to work hard, we should be fine."

Team Outlook: "Our goal is to have a successful winter track program and to try to qualify as many runners as possible for the state meet at the University of Delaware in February. We want every runner to improve from meet to meet, and to improve his or her personal bests in each event. We're also working to get everyone in great shape for the spring track season."
