Joel Hubbard: Marshfield High School
Joel has been the face of our team for the last 4 years. He is a strong competitor that you can never count out of a race. He has helped our team in so many ways over the years, running anything from the 300m to the 5k. Nothing proved how much he means to his team then then anchor leg of the DMR at Nationals. It will be tough to replace an athlete of his Joel's ability. The best has yet to come with this young athlete, at age 17 the future is very bright. ------Coach Sheppard
