Weekday preview: Taking one last chance at Swarthmore

After a very quiet weekend, the GRC takes to the track tomorrow evening for the Swarthmore Last Chance meet. This meet has always been a successful one for the team, and with the endless fun sure to transpire on the GRC van ride up to Philadelphia, it's truly a win-win all around.

Cabell Willis will shoot for a third consecutive PR in as many races when he toes the line in the 1500.

The 5000 will feature many of GRC's best and brightest talents, including Stewart Reich, Sean O'Leary, Dave Wertz, Dickson Mercer, and Paul Balmer. Many will look to close their spring seasons with a fast time, so look out for PRs to fall on Monday night.

Finally, everyone here at at the GRC would like to wish all of the mothers out there a very happy Mother's Day! It is no easy task to sit patiently through all-day track meets for a few minutes of action, to run over hill and dale just to get a few extra cheers in during cross country races, and to comfort a tired kid on a long ride home after a bad race. We wouldn't be where we are today without the support of our moms along the way.

We of course also want to take a minute to celebrate GRC's resident mommas, Laura O'Hara and Shauneen Werlinger. Greta, Benjamin, and all of the GRC are lucky to have you around!
