"It`s been a nice reward for us to have the depth because if we`re missing somebody for a week or two guys somebody always seems to step in there and pick that opportunity up for themselves so that`s a real nice thing and it makes things competitive during the week for us and kids look forward to the weekend races and depth is nice. In this sport that`s not always the case so you have to appreciate it which we do," said co-head coach Darrell Anderson.
The Demons also appreciate they have one of the best runners in the country on their team, junior Jake Leingang.
"Jake understands there are days he`s going to run with the group and the kids know there are days Jake is not going to run with the group and that`s just the difference in the level between them. It`s not a bad thing. It`s a good thing and it keeps our kids realizing that they`re fortunate to be around a very talented kid. They enjoy the runs they have with him. They know he`s going to make them better," Anderson said.
Preston Lerew, Lane Kasher and Brandon Berg join Leingang in the top 10.
