Coach: Rick Amero (15th year) and Tom Menendez (eighth year)

Returning letter winners: Boys: Senior — Elliott Kahl, Patrick Riley; Juniors — Kevin Desmond, Patrick McInnis, Tyler Guzman; Sophomore — Matt Bryant; Girls: Seniors — Devon Ayer, Abby Szotkowski, Audessy Chasse; Sophomore — Mackenzie Kelley.

Key losses:  Mike McCollett, Matt McCollett, Kerstin Grenier, Stephanie Spencer.

Promising newcomers: Boys: Seniors — Sam Crawford, David Kananowitz; Juniors — Zeke Merrill, Henry Talbot; Sophomore — Matt McInnis; Girls: Freshman — Miranda Allen.

Outlook: The Mustangs should be among the elite in the MVC again. The boys follow up a shocking run to the Class C title with four of their top seven runners returning. McInnis and Desmond both finished in the top 10 at states last year. The girls, who finished second in the state and the conference in 2008, currently have only four healthy runners, so filling the roster is the first priority.

Coach’s comment:

“We are looking for our veterans to step up and our new runners, If this happens, we can be competitive.”  — Coach Rick Amero
