Ultimately, the boys placed 11th and the girls placed seventh.
Key players: Key players included juniors Maggie Dominick, Sam Bucklew, and freshman Alexa Osmet for the girls; junior George Hubbard and seniors Edward Finman and Kaelig Michel led the way for the boys.
They said it: “The meet was a lot of fun and there couldn’t have been a better way to close out the season and my senior year,” Finman said.
Key moment: The boys team, as well as a few of the girls were able to qualify and compete in the state championship meet and earn rankings to close out the season.
