Head coach: Tyrel Cooper
Returning letter winners: Five
Top athletes: Maddie Fletcher (Sr.), Bella Sakai (Sr.), Nicole Snow (Jr.)
Outlook: The defending Division I state champions were set up for another huge season, but lost their top two runners, Zanae Jones and Morgan Anderson, to what Cooper called “medical reasons.”
Fletcher, Sakai and Snow all finished in the top 15 in the Sunset Region meet last year.
“We had a really good junior varsity team last year that won every invite so we will need those girls to push up into our top seven and keep that group competitive and motivated,” Cooper said.
“As a team, we are still looking to win our first regional championship and then have a strong showing at state. The girls teams in the Sunset are really tough. With Centennial and Palo Verde, nothing will be easily won or taken for granted. The Sunset graduated a lot of really good runners, so the dynamic of the region remains to be seen.”
