Comments from Coach Dan Taylor:

I was very pleased to see the momentum we have developed the last couple of meets continue into this matchup against Cherokee. I didn't see any letdown or lack of focus - the guys continued their intensity and concentration throughout their matches. Getting decisive wins in the first three meets of the year on both the varsity and jv sides is very encouraging. Our next two meets are against teams that will play at a higher level than we have seen so far - both Spencer and LeMars will be tough competition. But based on results we have had against common opponents, and looking at their rosters, I think both meets will be close and come down to who matches up with who in the lineup. I am looking forward to seeing what this team can do against them, as are our players.
