Season outlook: The boys’ team is looking to defend its KVAC title and has the depth to do it. Led by Isaiah Harris, the defending New England champion in the 800-meter run, the Blue Devils have depth in many areas, especially mid-distance, sprints, throws and horizontal jumps. The girls’ team looks to continue the momentum it generated from the indoor season when it finished a school-best second at state. Senior Heather Kendall leads a balanced Lewiston squad that stands to do well in the sprints, jumps, hurdles and relays.
