In advance of the competition, get to know the members of Team Ohio's women's roster (below and on the following page) and review a pre-meet assessment from head coach Anjanette Whitman

"Being the Head Coach for the Mideast Ladies' Team is a perfect way to honor our sport and those who helped me achieve what I have through running. I was a member of Team Ohio in 1990. I forged relationships with my teammates I still have today and benefited from great coaches across Ohio who simply loved to inspire others. My goal is have these ladies enjoy the same great experience so they too can continue to give to the sport going into the future."
