"Elizabeth transitioned nicely to our program after transferring. She bonded quickly with out women in the fall and in the spring she qualified to the Northern California final in the 800m. More importantly she saw she could run events ranging from 400m through 10,000m. With her natural strength and great leg speed it is only a matter of time before she shows she can excel as a cross country runner. Elizabeth could be key component to another Northern California title in Hartnell's history."
