It was a brisk night on Monday, November 3, when the Lasell track team stepped out on Grellier Field for practice. It was only 5:30 p.m., but already nearly pitch dark. The team was dressed in thermal attire as they stretched and began jogging exercises.
Coach Nicholas Noheimer watched as his players were warming up. “It’s a little cold out but we can manage,” said Noheimer.
