From the Sideline

“Aidan was named athlete of the meet at the Liberty Invite March 30. He won the shot put and discus, both with personal best marks. Aidan did a lot of off-season conditioning and winter training to improve in the shot put by 4 feet and in the discus by 7 feet. He is facing a lot of adversity outside of school and still a leader on the field team.”

– Coach Keith Eager
