"We made it a battle all the way until the last event. Entered the 4×400 relay trailing by 4.5 points to Lewis Central. We knew we had to win it, but needed some help from another school and not allow the to get better than fourth place. Didn't happen and the rest is history, a 2.5 point deficit. We preach to all of our kids that every point matters. We definitely left points out there, missing some opportunities to score ahead of LC. But contrary to that we had some big time performances during the meet." said Coach Starner

"The 4×400 relay team under a lot of pressure with the meet on the line and with a new make up of competitors, controlled what they were able to control and ran an outstanding time taking the Conference Championship. I am very proud of how our team was able to step up to the occasion and score the amount of points we were able to. Odds were stacked against us entering the meet, however we felt that we had a great chance to challenge for the Team Title and came within 2.5 points coming down to the last event. Did we have some shortcomings in some events, absolutely. But we also had some kids step it up. Being reminded by Mr. Bissen after the meet congratulating us on our performances; that as a team we have finished in the top 2 in the conference over the past 7 years doesn't necessarily completely satisfy our emotions, but there is a sense of accomplishment and when the dust cleared. we have that to hang our hat on. Now we move on gearing to qualify as many events to the State Track Meet and vying for the District Championship against one of the State Championship Team favorites; Sergeant Bluff-Luton. It won't be an easy task, but we'll do what we can to score as many points as possible." said Coach Starner
