Overall Outlook

UNB Coaches Tim Randall, Chris Gairns, James Murphy, Bill MacMackin, and Jason Reindl are looking forward to seeing this group of women in action.  While there were some significant losses it isn’t to say that it is all negative. Katie Robinson is coming off a summer where she set personal bests in the 800m and 1500m and Cailie McGuire set bests in the 1500m and 3000m.  While Robinson and McGuire will be looked at to lead the team on the trails the remaining spots are wide open asking the question of who is prepared to step up and make the performance jumps that this team needs?

 

Goals

The primary goal is to keep the team on the podium. Given the amount of losses that the team faces it will be tough for this group of young women but they are focused and ready for the challenge ahead. Secondary goals also include continuing to qualify athletes to the CIS national championships.
