2022 Outlook:

Girls: “We have strengths throughout all event groups, but we have had a few injuries occur (most occurring outside of our Track & Field sport) of some high scoring athletes, which changes the overall outlook. We have boosted up our coaching staff from 8 to 14 coaches to increase training and support for our athletes to help with rebuilding in all event groups. Honestly, each meet will be a battle for us on the girls side, and they will need to really step up to perform. The key and #1 goal is to keep them healthy, both physically and mentally, throughout the entire season.”

Boys: “The boys team could turn some heads, if they remain healthy. We have some top scoring athletes who have surprised the coaching staff. We have been working hard on building our weaker event groups, but it is up to our athletes to put in the effort and work in order to convert it to positive results! We compete against all top performing teams in our league, so our teams will be able to see firsthand exactly what it takes to win, and what it takes to be a top individual contender in the District as well. Whatever the overall record ends up, it’s exciting to have so much talent and potential to work with not only this season, but for the future as well.”
