"I love watching the kids compete at state. It is such an intense meet with a very competitive environment, but this is where kids truly get to see what track & field is all about. All in all, it comes down to the team. It was amazing to watch the team come together and contribute to the overall success of the meet. The girls did such a great job and the boys rose up the occasion. Really proud to be a Red Devil!" said Allissa Huffaker, girls head track coach.
