2023 Outlook: Our boys have returning strength in both the throws and sprints. We’re looking forward to see what Joe Roth and Wyatt Sherer bring to the javelin again this year. Ethan Buchert is a leader in our sprints. Our numbers are low on the boys side so we are trying to spread out their talent to cover all of the events. We have boys who are willing to try new events and we appreciate their eagerness to help.

Our girls team has strength in jumping events. Haley Ginder showed success in the high jump and Isabella Mystkowski is a leader in the pole vault. Isabella is a great team player and she’s even working on teacher others the technique she uses in pole vault.
