Aside from multiple injuries and a few absent athletes, the Redhawks sank both Heritage and Lebanon Trail Thursday on the boys side, but they failed to make a splash on the girls side, falling to both the Coyotes and Trail Blazers.

Proud of their efforts, junior Jeremy Lin feels his team accomplished their goal.

“Based on the previous meet, it’s safe to say that our team excels at bringing our all to each and every competition, going 100 percent on every race,” Lin said via text.

Head coach Nicholas Dion believes his team has an advantage over others in the sense that they do not let competitors get to them.

“I think our team’s strength is our mental approach to racing,” Dion said via email. “Our kids never seem intimidated by their opponent or what event they are in.’

This will come in handy for the team as the District 9-5A meet is in January.

“We had a great turnout over the Thanksgiving break,” Dion said. “This time of year is really where the rubber meets the road. I have told the team that we are calling this month, Championship December. Our District, Region, and State competitions are just around the corner, so we will be training hard in preparation.”
