COACH PROVENCE QUOTE
"We showed our youth today, but overall it was a successful meet. They ran hard and gained valuable experience. We have had a different mix of guys in the top-7 each of the first three weeks. When someone has an off race we have other guys stepping up. We have work to do, but I'm pleased with the direction we are headed."

NEXT UP
The Eagles next race will be at the Chile Pepper Festival Saturday, Sept. 30 in Northwest Arkansas.
