ANYTHING ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO SAY ABOUT TEAM, SEASON

BOYS: Despite losing our No. 2 runner Danny Feal Fajardo, EC returns its No. number one runner Aiden Henson, who is primed for a run at a regional berth this fall. Strong late season finishes by John Cline, Josh Cline and Jake Howard gives the Astros high hopes for the upcoming season. Top freshman runners Trent Garen and Quinten Tolle have had a good preseason and round out the Astros varsity team.

GIRLS: Losing our top two runners creates opportunity for Mersadees Gulley and Alex Hughes to move up and become our top runners, Reese Morgan rounds out the Astros varsity team.
