Ethan has played an important part of the success of our boy’s team this year. He is our team captain. He has been consistent in his placing during meets and his times have been coming down with each meet. Ethan designed our cross-country t-shirts this year and we plan on using that design on our social media page also.

Coach Tammy Wills Quote: 

“Ethan has worked very hard this season and it is showing with every meet he runs. He has been a great team captain and is always willing to help out his teammates and his coaches when needed. I am really looking forward to seeing how the final weeks of the season will play out for him. It is an added bonus that he will be back again with us next year.”
