Season outlook: Mt. Blue’s boys’ team is as big as its combined boys’ and girls’ teams were a year ago. Credit the new track and athletic facility at the school, although the Cougars haven’t had the opportunity to practice on it yet, thanks to the lingering snow pack. The addition of several proven athletes to a group that already included 2013 KVAC contenders Dwinal, Staples, Lesko, Minns, Farrington, Richards and Goozey gives the Cougars the look of a program on the rise.
