Illinois Wesleyan College Quotes – 4 x 100 Relay (Ali McCoy , Amanda LaRocca, Lauren Alpert, Shavantay Thomas)
What their realistic expectations were coming into today’s event:
Lauren Alpert and Shavantay Thomas: “Just to get the stick around the track, and not fall down.”
Their thoughts about trailing during the final 100 meters:
Lauren Alpert: “I got the stick in second or third place, and I was the third leg. I had the wind at my back. I knew if I ran well, and then gave the stick to Shavantay on the heels of Wartburg, I knew we had a good shot at winning.”
Shavantay Thomas: “Really just Titan pride. I knew we had two seniors that aren’t here with us. I knew that they wanted us to go out on a good note, and how hard we’ve been working all season to be where we’re at right now. Never give up on a race, no matter how far ahead another team is in front of us. It’s just all about Titan pride. “
