"This was such an unusual track season," girls head coach Elizabeth Hoover said. "I am thankful that the seniors got to participate this year, as last year their season was cut short due to COVID. We started this season wearing masks at all times during practices. As mandates eased up a little, the athletes were able to remove their masks while competing in their event. They have never once complained, but are trying their hardest to finish out a season that is anything but normal. These seniors have been an amazing crew! I am so lucky to have been a part of their journey."

"The underclassmen worked hard to make the seniors' last home meet special," said boys head coach Jill Gastrock. "Many seniors encouraged their new teammates and led by example. It's been fun to coach this group of resilient kids who had so many hurdles to overcome in the last year and half."
