According to Head Coach Armondo Rodriguez, “The season has started off slow due to the weather. The kids are really improving. We have only been to two varsity meets and one JH/JV meet. It has been a fun start to the season, and the kids are excited for some better weather to get out on the course.”

The next meet for the varsity is today (Thursday) at DeSmet, starting at 10 a.m., and the JH/JV will be in Miller on the same day. The 281 Conference meet for varsity/JV/JH had to be rescheduled to Friday, May 3, starting at 10 a.m. in Wessington Springs. The varsity then go to Huron for a James Valley Christian invite on Tuesday, May 7. If the weather doesn’t cause more problems, results will be in next week’s issue.
