It’s great to see steady improvement as this was only our 3rd meet. With back to back meets, and 3 in a row for our 4X1, and Steven in the 110 hurdles, we rested some people in certain events. So only being 9 points out of first place, I am very pleased with our performance!”, commented Boys Head Coach Jerry Doyle.
