"I am amazed at the mental toughness and focus that I saw from these ladies today," said coach Goodwin. "They rallied around the leadership of our lone senior, Nayeli Jacobo, a true team effort today." She concluded by saying, "I am exceptionally proud of tenacious freshman Noor Sabeeh qualifying for nationals. This is just the beginning of what this team will accomplish."

A successful season for coach Dee Goodwin's young Lady Roadrunners comes to a conclusion, but Dalton State will once again be represented at the national meet. With her 7th place finish, freshman Noor Sabeeh will compete in the NAIA National Championship on November 18, in Vancouver, Wash.
