2022 Outlook: “Ana Recker was the district champ in the pole vault last year and competed at the state meet. Emma Christman, Emma Snyder, and Nataly Walters will lead a strong group of jumpers. Christman led the team in points a year ago and will be counted on heavily once again. Abigail Fredericks will score a lot of points in the throws and she should be one of the top discus throwers in the district. Emma Martinez, who suffered through an injury-plagued 2021, is working really hard and is poised to have a breakout season.”
