Although the team was down in numbers because of illness and scheduling conflicts, Coach Darrin Scheffer believes the Wolverines are off to a great start.
“Our kids will gain valuable experience during this week that will allow them to see and experience a lot of track in a short time period,” he said. “When the dust settles, we will have an opportunity to see which events best fit our talents and skills.”
His athletes agreed.
“It was a solid first meet, a good starting point for improvement later on,” Schmidt said.
Schubert added, “It was a great start for the team. I can tell it is going to be a great season.”
