Thomas Benjamin saw my recent story on Amber Peirsol and sent me the photo below.
It includes legend Darryl Beardall, 2010 Empire Runner of the Year Ashley Moffett, 2011 Empire Runner of the Year Nicole Lane and Amber Peirsol shortly before the 2011 SCL cross country finals.
Here is a piece I did on Nicole Lane.
Ashley Moffett is preparing for her senior year of track at the University of San Francisco and last year turned in a fast 10,000m in 36:31.31 to bump Lane out of the Empire’s All-Time top 10 list.
