Phillips feels good about her team’s chances in the championships, saying, “Our team has put in a lot of hard work in this season, and I think everyone is ready to really race at champs. We’re perfectly set up to get lots of personal best times, and hopefully some more girls make our all-time top ten list. We’re also trying a few new things with our relays that I’m excited to see match up against the rest of the conference.”

Good luck to the Shorewomen, as the finish off their season.
