"I have spent the last couple of years trying to find the right training plan to keep Camille healthy and ready. She was 51st at the NCAA in cross country as a freshman and we are making great strides at getting her back to that level. We are excited for her to line up this fall. She provides a great boost to the group when she is on the line."
