“Everyone who competed there competed well under the conditions. It rained the entire time we were there and it slowed, but it never stopped,” Dennis said. “I pretty much told them, ‘this is an all-weather track, so it shouldn’t affect us.’ All they had to do was get out of the blocks, but as soon as they walk up to the starting line they know its game time.”
After a strong showing in Jefferson for the boys, Dennis now shifts gears to the girl’s team who will send eight participants in seven events to the girl’s GHSA Class-A Public School State Championships in Albany beginning on Thursday and continuing through Saturday.
“I think the girls, as a team, have a really good shot at being one of the top three, four, or five teams, based on the teams that qualified for state,” he said. “I’m excited for this weekend, to see how we do.”
