Here is what some of our coaches have to say about this change:

  • Girls track and and cross country coach Austin McQuary: “From my standpoint in my area, yes it will be more competitive and there will be an increase of numbers in our district with high caliber kids, but we’re looking forward to the challenge.”
  • Girls basketball coach Michelle Richardson: “We’ve got ourselves a tough one now but were definitely ready for the challenge.”
