Last Season (Boys): 6-4 

The boys' team qualified for the RI State Championship after a 2nd place finish at the Class meet a year ago. They finished 16th during the state meet.

 

Coach’s Outlook: 

 

“Our numbers on the boys' side are way down after losing almost half of our team to graduation. This is definitely a rebuilding year for our boys after many veteran runners graduated last June. We also graduated some very strong seniors on the girls' team, but we're happy to have Ella Pike back and we have some new runners that are showing a lot of potential. We'd love to three-peat at the Class Meet, but we'll have to have an amazing training season to get there.” - Tom Wharton (14th year)
