Statement from Head Coach Kevin Ondrasek
"I'm very pleased with the way our recruiting class has turned out so far this year. Every one of these young ladies has already accomplished so much on and off the track I can't help but get excited about what is to come in their near future. The most important thing this class brings to the table is their passion for the sport and their drive for being successful at whatever they do. These are people of extremely high character with a capacity for working hard and the ability to race like champions. We are very happy to have them join the Southern Miss Track and Field Family as the Cross Country tradition continues to grow".
