"We seek to have all perform well," Smith said, praising the veteran team members for mentoring the less experienced and younger runners. The team has both girls and boys representing each high school grade, 7 through 12.
Underwood, Tomko, O'Brien, Mastrodomenico and the other veterans look after the younger set, Smith said.
"They're all very encouraging to all runners, regardless of their ability," Smith said. "We have a family atmosphere."
