On his time at William and Mary, rising senior Regan Rome said, "Chris keeps his running accomplishments separate from his coaching. Just because he's an accomplished runner doesn't mean he's going to be an accomplished coach, and he knows that. He's ready to put in the work."
At the time Solinsky said, "This was a glorified tempo run. This was just an indication race to see where I was ... This was my debut. No one expected it. I didn’t expect it!”
Some good quotes from Solinsky and Fenton. Solinsky: “I’m not a guy who waits for a final kick. Not to compare myself to [Steve] Prefontaine, but I always had the mentality of, ‘If you’re going to beat me, I’m going to make you hurt.’ I liked making a move early just to challenge you...even if I was bluffing.”
