Who are the teams and individuals that will make an impact this weekend.
Remember last year when the girls of Lenox put four girls in the top five and won the team title by over 50 points? Well they haven't lost a single member from that squad and we will probably see it play out in very similar fashion this year.
First of all my whole coaching staff. I honestly think I had some of the best coaches in the state which made all the difference in the world. Not only the coaching itself and how knowledgeable they were about the sport, but people like Coach Kraft, Coach Clayton, and Coach Frodema always kept me motivated and excited about running. Even though I wasn't a field athlete the jumping and throwing coaches were just as amazing. Also my family for coming to just about every home/away meet, and for a ridiculous amount of trips to Reggie over the years.
