Kingston Track and Field
Head coach: Lee Willson (boys); Karla Manuguid (girls).
Key athletes (boys): Stefans Lusis, Chase Claymore, Kade Claymore, Lief Nelson, Gunne Jacobson, Tyler Marquez, Curtis Upton, Zawadi Leon, Javier Bimbela, Zael Munger.
Key athletes (girls): Alexis Ashcroft, Olivia Call, Valentine Campbell, Aidan Mills, Annelysa Quinn, Mataya Stroud, Brooke Troyer, Cora Caldis, Grace Epperson, Claire Moe, Christa Sindel.
Outlook: This group is much younger than in past years, but fortunately many of the new athletes have experience from competing at Kingston Middle School. The Bucs should continue to excel in the distance events, especially with Lusis still in the fold, one of the best cross-country runners in the area. But Willson and the coaching staff are also excited about the higher number of throwers, jumpers and sprinters that have made their way into the program.
