From the Sideline

“Gloria Gonzalez is started the season with a 16 foot Personal Record in the javelin. This is her second year in track, and this year she is also learning to throw the discus. She works incredibly hard in practice, often staying late to work with Coach Nels. She is usually the last person to leave. On Saturday she stayed an hour longer than anyone else. Her great attitude, coachability, work ethic, passion, and dedication are having a huge impact both on her personal improvement but also the atmosphere of the team.”

— Coach Jef Rettmann
