Coach comments:

“I was pleased with both Ryan and Nate’s finish at the conference meet in field events,” stated head coach Craig Warnke. “The sprint med team ran a new personal record (PR) and set a new school record. The shuttle relay and 4x1 relay also both ran to a PR for the season. Isaiah and Isaac also ran season bests in the 800 and 400, respectively. As usual, the NCC had very excellent times and distances for the evening and we were able to use the quality competition to set us up for some state-hopeful finishes this week."
