Coaches' comments: BOYS -- "I think we're going to be pretty solid all around on the boys side. I can see us fighting for second or third in the county." GIRLS -- "We're going through a lot of injury and illness."
The Carroll County Sun's outlook: BOYS -- Their quality and depth atmiddle distance will help the Cavs, and they'll have some strong performers in other events. Kessler also could do well in the state meet. GIRLS -- The numbers are down and depth is a problem in several events. Injuries have hurt, too, with Mullins out for the season and Livesay, a promising freshman, suffering a variety of injuries and illnesses.
