“Our depth has been a key factor to the team’s success this season,” Cadet Girls’ Coach Karen Steffen said. “We have multiple athletes who can step in and run our sprint races and relays well, as was shown at the South Winn meet.
“Our young middle and distance runners have been working hard to improve their performance and earn points for the team. We're proud of the strides they have made to become stronger, more confident runners," Steffen said.
The Cadet boys' and girls' track teams will compete at the Class 2A State Qualifying Meet in Denver on Thursday, May 9 at 4 p.m.
