THE ROUNDUP

It was only 7 a.m. on Aug. 30, but it was already 93 degrees and the 2011 Brophy cross country team had already been running for an hour in the hottest recorded August in Arizona history, according to kpho.com.

But their coach said it is not just the group, it is the endurance that makes them good. “This is one of the best teams we’ve ever had, because the players run so close together,” said Mike Keahon ’73, current head coach and member of the Brophy Hall of Fame.
