With that being said, Kvalevog has been working towards a second year going to the Michigan International Speedway for the state meet to round out his senior year. Previous captain, Noah Willaford said,”I am out this year due to injuries, but the team has been running well this year and is pushing to do better.”

The team has 15 runners and despite their size, they have big goals. Junior William Schmidtfranz said,”This year the team has been doing a lot better with our ranking outcomes because we have all been working very hard.”
