We went into this meet not knowing what to expect from either team, and our girls performed very well. Even though we did not have a lot of personal records, the Lady Broncs racked up a lot of first and second place finishes. Early in the season we knew that we had to work on our throwers because they were young. As the season is progressing, our throwers Hiles, Oetting, Bangert, Donaldson and Williams have emerged as some of the top throwers in the league.”
