"Our junior girls have had a very successful year,” commented head coach Danny Westbrook. “Our middle school coaches, Rhonda Hall at Bethel and Angel Dale at Bryant, have done a great job getting our seventh and eighth graders ready to race each week. We have some really good runners moving up to high school next year and I am looking forward to working with them."
