“It was a very good meet, by far our most competition this year until city meet. The meet featured several impressive kids from Alabama, and our boys raced very well, highlighted by season best times in all 3 relays and 20 best times on the weekend. The team bonding of travelling together on a bus and spending a full day together and eating meals together was what we needed to get closer to one another and create a team atmosphere moving forward. We are now at the halfway point of the season, and continue to work for state meet on November 22 and 23. The next two weeks of training will be vital in determining success at state meet. We are looking forward to the challenge,” commented Head Coach Doug Logsdon.
