UA Cross Country Coaches Run (and Win) the Flying Pig
Three of Ursuline's cross country coaches ran in the Flying Pig Marathon on Sunday, May 3, 2015. Assistant Coach Amy Robillard, Assistant Coach PJ Ball and Assistant Coach David Bea ran and placed in the top 5. PJ Ball placed 4th running a 3:04.47; David Bea placed 2nd running a 2:35.23; and Amy Robillard (left) won running a time of 2:53.07.
Coach Robillard was the defending champion, but clearly was the one to beat. She won the race by over 6 minutes and beat her time from last year (2:55.50). Congratulations to all our coaches on a fantastic race. You are not only excellent coaches, but excellent examples to our athletes.
