With a large group returning, Coach Caragein’s goal is to win the Mountain League with both his male and female athletes.

The first meet will be a home quad meet competing against Bald Eagle, Bellefonte, and DuBois on March 23.

He also believes COVID-19 won’t affect athletes’ training much, if at all.
