Sidney Head Coach Donna Wiedeburg was ecstatic with the performance of her team, saying, “I think the kids were bored of running around Sidney and racing one another and they showed up today big time! We had almost every single runner improve their time from last year's Panhandle Classic. I am so proud of all of these kids and this program. We are going to get back to work and excited to see how we compete next week at Western Conference in Gering.”
