“Districts went as well as we had hoped and planned for, thanks to the hard work of the athletes this season,” stated head coach Katharine Siemer. “Sending all our men's relay teams to sectionals is a big step in moving our program forward. The coaching staff could not be happier with the results and we look forward to moving kidsto the state championship meet!”
