“For being our first meet and just coming out of basketball I was very impressed with the way both our varsity and JV boys performed,” DHS Head Track Coach Victor Flores said. “It is early in the season and it is hard right now for our multiple sport athletes.
“For only having two weeks of conditioning and being our first meet of the season, we competed very well, hopefully our other athletes will come along and help us out down the road. We would love to have more guys out there to put together some relays.”
