    Shanelle Stephens, Meagan McKee, and Ann Poythress are all top competitors returning this season and portray excellent leadership both on the track and in the classroom to the rest of the team.

    "The Run for the Dream meet is a great way to start the season. I'm very excited to see how our team reacts to competition," Winsor said. "We've had some very good performances during fall training. Now it's time for our upperclassman to put their skills on display against other competition and to show our underclassman how it's done."

    Run for the Dream, is a great way to get an early start to the indoor season and allows the Bulldogs to get a better feel for where they are at for outdoor season.

    "Fresno State women's track and field has a very bright future and we are excited to get this year rolling," said Winsor.
