“We are a lot stronger than we were last year, and they are getting better and better every week,” Colts coach Josh Deslattes said. “We feel like we are doing really well.

Walt has stepped up as our No. 1 runner, and the other runners are all quality high school runners as well,” he said. “(Tuesday’s) weather was just perfect for a race, and we got some really good times out of them.
