Our numbers are down this year for the first time in a long while and that is always a concern with this sport. We still have some quality athletes in all types of events and are looking forward to both individuals and relays making a long run toward state this season."

Coach's comment: "Last season we were very young as a team and finished fourth (in the MAL). We only graduated one sprinter and one thrower who scored in that meet. This year's thrower is as good as what we graduated and we have sprinters who can run as fast as the young lady we lost to graduation. I expect the entire team to step it up a notch this year. I am looking forward to handing them the awards for the work they will do to earn it."
