Last season concluded with two runners finishing among the top 15 teams at the state meet. Junior J.J. Orput was the 3A state runner-up and senior Luke Sinclair finished 15th (both earning all-state honors). Other 2015 highlights include a varsity Raccoon River Conference runner-up finish (missed 1st by a fraction of a second) and a dominating JV conference championship.
Orput is back to lead a strong group that includes seven returning letter winners: Josh Felger (senior), Kobi Sadler (junior), Carter Logue (sophomore), Zachary Willcox (sophomore), Nate Rowray (sophomore) and Jon Flaws (sophomore). Orput was the Raccoon River Conference individual champion last season and he is joined by Sadler, Logue and Willcox as returning all-conference runners.
The team has put in a lot of hard work the past nine months and is eager to take that next step as a program. The program welcomes a new addition to our coaching staff, Mack Van Zante. Coach Van Zante will work with both the boys and girls teams this fall. The season opener is August 30th at DC-G.
