Senior Kate Walsh competes in the 100, 200, 400, and relays. Walsh is happy with the results of the season so far. “We’ve had a good season so far, but the weather hasn’t been that great. We are all working really hard preparing for our upcoming meets.” She said.

 The team has had 5 meets canceled due to the weather.
