Coach Tammy Wills quote:

“Zach has been working very hard this year. He put in a lot of miles over the summer and he is seeing it pay off. He is very focused on where he wants his season to go. He finished 6th last Saturday at the Big Valley Invite which is one of the biggest meets in the area and usually a top ten there means a trip to states at the end of the season. He also finished second just behind his brother Joe in our meet against West Branch on Wednesday. At practice he has been a great leader and role model helping our new junior high runners.”
