“Having two top-15 athletes in state is an accomplishment for our school and program,” head coach Jeff Brever said. “Calia and Eli have worked hard throughout the year and are deserving of their success at state. Both Calia and Eli were in great positions at the second mile with the opportunity to make the podium of top ten.

“I am happy for Eli and Calia and am excited for them. It is always a great honor to compete at state and hopefully this experience will propel them into another successful return next year.”
