“This year was a great season,” said Coach Mickelson. “As a coach, you wonder if four schools will be able to create a positive team culture. This group of kids did it without even thinking. We achieved a lot this season. I am proud of the accomplishments this team made, both on and off the track. The future looks bright for River Valley Wildcat track and field.”
