“The warm weather is really starting to help as times are dropping and field events are really improving,” Rodriguez said, adding, “We will need to maintain this improvement if we want to remain undefeated in the SEC and win a SEC championship.”
The other big event is the regional meet, which is only three weeks away, he said.
“This meet will determine our state qualifiers and we are looking to take as many as we can to the state championship meet,” Rodriguez said, adding, “I enthusiastically applaud the efforts of the athletes, coaches, and parents for making the season so far a huge success.”
The coach is looking for four volunteers to time during the home meet against Tecumseh on Tuesday.
