“For the first time in my coaching career we had two freshmen leading the way on the boys team: Nathan Schutte and Spencer Locke were our #1 and #2 finishers. The rest of the boys were able to pull together and give good performances also.”

“Our girls also gave good efforts. Claudia Nichols led the way for the Lady Pirates with a good effort. The rest of our girls gave fine efforts too. As the season progresses, they will see their times and places drop.”
