2022 Outlook: “The boys are very coachable and excited for the upcoming season. Despite heavy graduation losses of several talented athletes, we believe there is potential for much success this season. Junior Owen Hibell was last year’s district champ in the 3200M and gained valuable experience competing at the state meet as a sophomore. Seniors Lucas Heydt and Dominic Kintz lead a strong group of sprinters, while Harrison Dailey will score points in the pole vault and long jump. John Schaible, Heydt, and Dailey will be counted on to score consistently in the throws.”
