            Make it to State.

            “This is a hard working group that is goal oriented,” Hinders said. “To be successful we need to run as a pack.”

            The Cardinal boys have a number of runners to look towards to reach those goals, bringing in four seniors and six returning letterwinners.

            Jake Hejlik, Blake Lynch, Caleb Renner, Aiden Richardson and Brandon Englin will make up the core of the 16 runners on the team through the season.
