Head Coach Bruce Peterson is optimistic heading into league meets. “Our girls team, while not at full strength, still finished in seventh place, led by Cheyenne Ulrich,” said Peterson. “Our boys team, led by Kitto Gonzales, with a fifth place finish; and Logan Rose with a 15th place finish was strong in a very large field of runners. Our freshman and sophomore runners continue to improve.”

“I am very encouraged by our teams’ performance. We are getting some good experience running in these invitational meets.”
