Improvements Throughout Season

Coach Dekrey said the Tigers have been running with more competitiveness than they did earlier in the season.

“Improvements that we’ve seen include an increase in competitive spirit from both the boys and girls,” Coach Dekrey said. “Another huge improvement has been the overall attitude of the kids towards workouts.”
