Player(s) to watch – I really think I have a group of athletes that have a lot of potential to have an excellent year. They made big strides during last year’s season and I look for them to have really good seasons. Nik Lewis was a state qualifier in two events last year so I look for him to build on that success. Logan Henderson, Mikey Jasso, Evan Grigg, and Randy Hartel make a great core to our team and were also state qualifiers last season. I am blessed with a lot of experience for the boys and look forward to seeing their hard work pay off. We have a few more girls out this year and they are pretty athletic, so I look for much improvement from the girls team., Violet Johnson will be a good leader for the rest of the girls. She is a good athlete and will do well in the sprint events.
Team Strengths: The overall strength of our team will be in the sprint and field events. Our distance runners are young and will get better through the course of the season.
Team goals: The team goals never really change, work hard, improve throughout the season and take the highest places we can.
League Outlook: Kingston,Deckerville, and Mayville all have strong programs so they will be in the running. We will be trying to get mixed in with these teams on the boys side and if we can sneak in some distance points we hope to improve on our 3rd place finish in the league last year.
