The No. 9 Rams had a postseason to remember. After finishing second to eventual Class 3A state champion Mervo at the city championships, Digital Harbor captured the Class 1A South regional crown.
The biggest prize, however, was the Class 1A state title, which became the school's first such honor in outdoor or indoor track and field.
