Spider of the Week: Jill Prentice

Q: What were your expectations before the race?

A: Our goal as a team was to defend our title as A-10 champions, but we also knew that there were about five other teams that could give us a good run for our money and that it was going to be an extremely competitive race. So, as a team, we knew that we should place within the top five. Our team is relatively young so I'm extremely proud of the way my teammates competed and happy with our team placing fourth. Individually, I wanted to be within the top five. I knew the individual race would also be extremely competitive, with a few seniors and fifth year seniors favored to win, so I honestly did not expect to win.

Q: What were you thinking after you won and the team took fourth?

A: I couldn't have been prouder to be part of this program. I was so overcome with excitement and joy that the pain of the race did not even hit me until much later.

Q: What are you doing to prepare for the Southeast Regional?

A: To prepare for the Southeast Regional meet, I think it is most important that we stay focused and determined. The coaches do a really great job at making sure we are rested and well-prepared physically for the race, and it is up to us to make sure we are equally mentally prepared as well.
