â€śWe definitely took some steps forward at todayâ€™s meet,â€ť said ECCHS coach John Schneider.
â€śThe sunny day was a welcome change from our previous meets and made it possible for us to move ahead with quite a few personal bests and seasonâ€™s bests.
â€śThe rivalry with St. Marys brings out the best from both of our squads and made for some very exciting races. Next weekâ€™s inaugural District 9 League meet will give us another chance to improve before our invitational at Lock Haven.â€ť
