Quote from Head Coach Kevin Donner
“After spring break and a rust buster at Susquehanna, I consider the Colonial Relays the start of our spring season,” noted Donner. “We have been a staple at this meet for many years and our athletes really enjoy the concept. We are not quite concerned with times and distances just yet, but I am looking to be competitive in the team standings and scoring well as a team.”
