“I would like to thank the team for doing their very best this year,” commented Head Coach Tammy Sayers. “You were great and I am proud of each of you. Eighth graders, thank you for leading this team and guiding the younger classmen. You did a wonderful job. I will miss you next year.”

Coach Sayers mentioned a student-athlete that meant a lot to her and the team. “Jason Smith had to miss the last three meets due to an ankle injury.  His strength as a jumper, relay team member, and runner has definitely been noticed off the track. He has done a great job encouraging his teammates on the sidelines. Thanks Jason.”

Coach Sayers also wanted to thank her assistant coach, David Mitchell (shot put coach), the girls head coach, Buddy Farris (discus coach), the girl’s assistant coach, Jane Honeycutt, (hurdles/high jump coach) and assistant coach, Abby Smith, (long distance coach) for helping make the Dublin Middle School boys’ team a great success in 2013.
