Tolsia Head Coach Noah Copley
“… We have three new guys this year, they are learning as we go. This team is going to be very fast very soon and be making a run at firsts and state going forward.”
“… Devon Crum has a legitimate shot at making state in the long jump. Last week he jumped 16’5’’ at his first meet and has already improved that by a foot and a half. He is a confident guy says he can get to 19 or 20 feet.”
“… Brent Setser is one of the hardest working one of the finest young men I have had a pleasure working with. He was against single and double here and was very competitive.”
