Boys

The top returners are sophomore sprinter Prince Kruah and junior sprinter Gabe Galamue. Both ran on last year’s 4×200 relay with the graduated Leo Wiagbe and Fawaz Oba that took second in the state meet. Both Kruah and Galamue are off to a good start as they already ran a 50 second in the 400.
