Head coach Steve Navarro said, “The coaching staff has really enjoyed working with this group of kids this year. They have been putting in hard work despite some less than stellar conditions for practice and meets. We are excited to see what they can do now that we are approaching the end of the season. As a coaching staff we believe we will be competitive in what I believe is one of the toughest league meets in the state. “
