“Also, a big thank you to Kathi Kirkeby, who stepped in and volunteered as assistant coach this year.  Her help was greatly appreciated.

I’m super proud of this group of kids.  Each athlete improved in their individual events throughout our short season.  Good luck in the future to seniors Kylie, Sophia, Juan, Carson, and Amanda!”
