"It was kind of a slow start for most of them but they finished strong," said multis coach Tim Cawley. "The last few events went really well. Day 1 was just a nice solid day. Josh and Justin are in good position and it might have been one of Cate's better first days. I'm excited to see how they do tomorrow."
