CAY15_relayrace15UGA:  “We were the first girls to ever do the portage.  We started in first and Piper and I did a great job staying in the lead.”  –Sophie L

MOHAWK:  “I ran the Farm House to White’s Road (leg).  It was really wet, and I had a bad bruise on my leg, but I ran it out and it was really close when I finished”  –Noah G

ONONDAGA:  “We didn’t do too well with the15_relayrace18 message.  It had only one word when I got it.  I thought about maybe adding some but figured I would let someone else do it”  – Peter B

SENECA:  “It wasn’t too hard but it was kind of tricky”  – Ireland (discussing her role as a canoe racer)

TUSCARORA:  “I got there first, even though there were some real fast guys doing it!”  –  Prisca (opening leg)
