"Justice and Blaise are 4-year veterans and extremely helpful in helping the newbies at practice," commented head coach Jill Gastrock. "They are both dependable and supportive. Justice has contributed many places/points for team standing both in high jump and throws. Riley and Lucas are commendable for coming out in their senior year. They seemed to enjoy trying something new and I was proud of their growth!"

"These girls have worked hard to get to this point," said head coach Elizabeth Hoover. "They got shut down as sophomores and ran with masks as juniors. They've shown great leadership at the times when it was truly needed. They've excelled in their perspective events, and I've enjoyed watching them grow as athletes and young ladies! I have no doubt that they will be successful in whatever they pursue in the future."
