Scoiltens?”I am treating this season as a season of growth. We have a huge majority of freshmen and sophomores and I am interested in helping them develop athletically. We also have a good core of Juniors and Seniors so I am happy to have their leadership.
“The 4×400 will be a fun race to watch. Further, it seems that in about every event we have a junior or senior leader to take the young kids under their wing. As a first year head coach, I am very happy that this is the case.
“Again, we are very young overall. Having such a young team means that we need to grow up in about every way. Athletically and in terms of maturity. It will happen, but it will take time.”
