Outlook for the season: “I believe that we can have an excellent outdoor season. We lost some of the best runners the school had ever seen, so this year is certainly a rebuilding season in a sense. Still, we have multiple returning state medalists, and a great amount of talent. Developing toughness and leadership will be keys to successful season.”
