"Infeld had a lot of ups and downs in September and October, but she never stopped believing in her team and her teammates," Miltenberg said. "Emily Jones was a great example of running for your teammates. And the freshmen rose to the occasion."
The national championship was the last time Infeld will run for the Hoyas as a member of the cross country team, though she still has a year of eligibility left in both indoor and outdoor track.
"She’s one of the most accomplished athletes in Georgetown history," Miltenberg said. "The biggest impact she had on our program is who she is and what she brought to practice every day. She’s fired up, excited and … responds to adversity with excitement and intensity."
And adversity is exactly what the Hoyas faced all year. But with the upperclassmen’s leadership, the freshmen’s emergence and Miltenberg’s guidance, Georgetown refused to unravel.
"It’s a great story of how they never stopped believing, even when other people wrote them off," Miltenberg said. "They never stopped believing. They were truly running for each other."
