The numbers are down for the Malta M-ette Cross Country team as they graduated five seniors last season and welcomed two new runners to the team.

In all, Malta has seven runners, three less than last year's total of 10.

"Sometimes a smaller group is kind of nice and intimate," Malta M-ette Head Coach Thea Solberg said. "You can really focus on each runner to help them out if they have a goal of wanting to run faster, you can push them harder."

She went on to say that in larger groups sometimes runners in the middle of the pack are pushed less and thus their performance can be compromised.
