Since NCAA athletes were sent home in March due to the spread of COVID-19, UNC director of cross country and track and field Chris Miltenberg has continued to emphasize the core values of his program.
The huge wins over the Yellow Jackets may have provided a jolt of energy for the Tar Heels, who cruised through the Chapel Hill Regional, outscoring their opponents 34-14 over a three-game span.

"He’s going to bring out the best in you, and every day at practice, his energy, his drive, and his own work ethic, rubs off on us. We see how much he puts into it and you want him to respect you and you want to reciprocate the same work ethic he’s putting in.”
