Season outlook: The boys’ team has a lot of production to replace as it lost seven seniors from last year’s squad. Dirigo will look for production in both the sprints and the distance events. The girls’ team, on the other hand, return a bulk of its athletes. Among those is Jessica Conant, the defending MVC champion in the 400-meter dash. Coach Bradbury believes the girls’ team will be in the running for a conference title.
