Hey guys,

Thanks for all the great work tonight. Those of us who can't be there tonight really appreciate it. Chris, good luck tomorrow if I don't see you.

Your site is really getting exposure after the MSHSL state meet. Everyone is talking about it. I hope you don't mind if I put a link to it on my high school team page (www.faribaulttrack.com)

Keep up the great work!!
