KEY PLAYERS LOST

Brandon Davis – our top sprinter for the last two years graduated, Bryson Mills and Nathan Gibbs both lost to the season due to injuries suffered during wrestling.

RIGHT NOW I LIKE

We have good numbers and are working hard on a daily basis.

RIGHT NOW WE NEED TO IMPROVE

Our biggest area of concern is pole vault. We lost both our pole vaulters to season ending injuries during wrestling season. Unfortunately weather has not cooperated so we haven’t had much time outside to work on finding replacements.

LEAGUE FAVORITE

Hillsboro won last year so they are the favorite until someone beats them.
