The Crimson coaches are excited about next season as many top runners return.
“This young team has a ton of potential over the next few years,” girls’ coach Jen Riewe said. “We will have all of our varsity squad back again next year plus a great group of JV runners. We are looking forward to making a trip to the state meet as a team next year.”
