"It wasn't the greatest meet of the season for us, but this national meet was a huge stepping stone leading into next season," said Jamaal Barnes head track and field coach at PCC. "We ran nine kids this past weekend, and seven were freshman who will be back next year. That's what this season was about for me, building to set us up for a big year in 2018-19. I'm happy about the work our sophomores put in to guide us, and I wish them the best in their future endeavors. Moving forward our focus is to finish recruiting and prepare for the 2018-19 track season."
