League: Division I-A Sunset
Head coach: Scott Thrasher, 13th season
Returning lettermen: Three
Top athletes: Marcus Vellinga (Sr.), Keith Baker (So.), Noe Olivo (So.), Rylan Banegas (So.)
Outlook: Vellinga, who finished 26th in last year’s Division I-A Southern Region meet, leads a list of three returnees for the Desert Shields.
“The team will be young, but very much improved,” Thrasher said. “Three of the top five runners will be sophomores.”
