"Really good meet for us overall,’’ said coach Steve McCannon. "The meet after spring break ends up being hit or miss, so I am pleased with what we learned from this meet. This was our first meet with the girls from basketball and we had a couple of girls unable to attend but we were still able to see where we are at. We did very well in a few events and so so in others. Very quality, well run meet with lots of teams. Points are harder to come by with this many teams.’’
The team is at Florence this week.
"District is 27 days away and we will taking aim at our ninth district title in the last 10 years and our eighth in a row,’’ said McCannon.
