"Jake, Matt, Sam and Terrance have been running for 4 to 5 years and they will really be missed.
We will be

counting on Kevin Wilkerson and 1st year runner Austin Ard next year to step up. All of the grils return next year

so we are expecting big things from the girls team next year," Coach Todd stated.
