Head coach: Tony Stephens, second season
Returning letter winners: Eleven
Top athletes: Dani Chami (Sr.), Jeneke Heerema (Sr.), Delaney Gosse (Sr.), Bailey Gosse (Sr.), Francie McCall (Sr.), Kaitlyn Herndon (Jr.), Cassidy Gosse (Sr.), Dionne Giang (Sr.), Hannah Thistle (So.), Krista Thompson (Sr.)
Outlook: The Mustangs certainly aren’t short on experience with state meet champions returning in Heerema (1,600, 1,600 relay, 3,200 relay), Chami (pole vault, long jump), Delaney Gosse (800, 3,200 relay), Bailey Gosse (3,200, 3,200 relay) and Thompson (3,200 relay).
“The state runnerup girls team will be even stronger this year with numerous returning state leading athletes,” Stephens said. “Two-time state champ Dani Chami will defend her pole vault and long jump titles and will compete in the sprint relays. Delaney Gosse returns as a top multi-event performer in the high jump and distance races along with co-state meet champions Jeneke Heerema, Bailey Gosse, Krista Thompson, Elizabeth Bice and Hannah Thistle.
“Newcomer Ellen Hirsberg will add depth. Francie McCall and Kaitlyn Herndon will lead in the short sprints along with Tessa DeJong.”
