"We had great competition at the Section Meet," said Coach Lynn Keller. "It was a fast and simple course. We ran the best that we have all season. All the runners had personal records. I could not be more proud of the run- ners." It was a good season for the Trojan runners. They continued to improve their times as the season progressed. "I had a great group to coach," said Keller. "They were all hard working at practice and pushed each other, which helps to improve the meet times. I also have my first full girls team this season and they were great to coach. They has so much energy and were fun to run with ." There were no seniors on the girls squad this year, so all return to what should be a strong team for next year. Keller will lose six boy runners, some of which have been out for the sport since seventh and eighth grade. Nick Athey, who was the captain this year, has been participating in cross county since seventh grade. He brought a lot of personality to the team and has been a great leader. Caleb Tollakson and Joseph Mathes have been involved since eighth grade and have continued to improve their times each year. Jake Henrich, who earned Most Valuable runner this sea- son, has been involved since ninth grade. He brought the team to a differ- ent level. Jarett Haugen has been out for two years and was part of the "pushing force" for the team along with Caleb. They really pushed the team at practice which helped improve our meet times. Dillan Roggenbuck was out for the sport for the first time this year and did a terrific job. "I want to thank the runners for their hard work during the season," said Keller. "They are a great bunch of ath- letes to coach. Also, thanks to the par- ents for their support, it means a lot." Keller also wants to thank Lisa Ross for providing treats and gatorade for the runners during the season and to her home meet helpers Connie and Carol Newman, Ginger and Ron Athey and Chelsea Stattelman.
