“Ellis is a strong runner. She will help balance things for us in the 800 and 1,600.”

Hurdles should be another good area for the Redskins.

Field events could be another strength.

“Place is the school record holder in pole vault and she is looking to improve upon that,” the coach said. “Corbett has been vaulting and has been consistent. Corbett will also help in high jump. She went 5-2 during the indoor season.”

DeVries, Yoder and Bustos are the leading sprinters. DeVries and Yoder will compete in the 100 and 200 and “Bustos the 100.
