  • 2006 Cross Country Outlook
    September 08, 2006
    First-year coach Jamie LaFollette begins his tenure at the helm of Guilford’s cross country program with high expectations. The Quakers return the core of their 2005 squad with 10 total letter winners back from last year’s squads. The team is excited to begin the season with LaFollette’s new training regimen. His training focuses on more consistent mile splits and developing finishing speed by using pool workouts, bike intervals and weight training. Another cause for excitement is a planned five/eight kilometer cross country course on Guilford’s campus. The new course will serve as the Quakers’ practice facility and allow Guilford to host high school and small college invitational meets. It would also enable the Quakers to train on grass instead of road courses.
