3rd is the best we've ever done.   3 points from 2nd.

Fastest state team average ever.   Lowest point total ever.  Best boys team ever.

In virtual meet all class, we rank #3 vs #8 last year.  2 years in a row top 10.

Mid 40s degree temps and calm winds made for fast running.

> When it mattered most for the team, Trent comes up big.

> What made this team work is that they were a team all year.   7 guys, pulling on the oars in the same direction.

> These guys have started the ball rolling.  It is our job to keep that ball rolling.  We WILL keep the ball rolling.

> Time to make a decision.  Anyone can say they "hope" to be good.   Few are prepared to actually do what it takes.

> Our goal is excellence.   We will support anyone who wants to be their best self.    In running and in life.
