Mustangs head coach Andrew Lenton was pleased with the results of the Saturday, Feb. 16 trip, especially the number of personal best performances so early in the season.
“Coming into a quality meet which features some of the best high school athletes in the Pacific Northwest and being this competitive speaks to the talent and the hard work that my athletes have been putting in all winter,” Lemnton said.
“Especially for the younger athletes [who] we took down for the experience and were competing against high school seniors in events featuring up to 90 athletes”.
