Q: How do you feel the season will go this year?
A: We’re pretty optimistic. We’ve got a nice mix of young talent and veterans on the team. The veterans have been through a lot and they’ve seen a lot of good meets. We feel like they could have a lot of leadership to the young guys who are really talented and making their way up.
Q: What are you looking forward to this season?
A: Nice weather would be a nice change of pace.
Q: Any records you guys are striving to break?
A: We’re realistically looking at the personal [records] we have. We’re looking to break the 4×4 relay record.
Q: What big conference meets should we be looking out for?
A: Our last meet is against Portage and Valpo, and that is going to be on May 3 here at Lake Central. That’ll be a big meet as well as the DAC championship.
Q: What is the best part about coaching?
A: You get to see kids and athletes mature, and you get to see them when they come in as freshmen and leave as seniors. [You get to see] just how much they’ve improved and the people they’ve become.
Q: How often does the team practice?
A: Six days a week and there [are] seven distinct groups within the team. Each coach sets their own individual time.
