Coach Ahearn’s comments:
“Brighton came to play yesterday. They ran great and locked up the conference champion spot and I tip my hat respectfully to them. Northville isn’t an easy team to beat so to slide into the third team spot behind those tough programs is totally respectable. I was very proud of our team and told them before the race that anything above 4th place where we were seeded would be a bonus. I feel like the girls are in a great physical space to be ready to run at regionals next week and hopefully head to the state finals the week afterwards.”
