“The teams we met at this meet were not as strong as before,” explained Head Coach Buddy Farris. “A lot of our girls were able to place that usually don’t get to. It was a good effort by the girls as usual. I’m very proud of my girls.”

When asked what it means to go undefeated as a team, Coach Farris said “It is always good not to lose. We practice and go into the meets with the attitude to win. If we lose, we are to be good sports and work harder for the next meet. I want the girls to expect to win every time we go out.”

The Dublin Lady Dukes have only lost one track & field meet in six years. “I have had a lot of good talent and good girls in this program,” Coach Farris continued. “It’s not the coach. I will be the first to say that in track, if you have great girl’s talent and speed, something you cannot coach, you will have a good team.” And so, another successful track & field season has passed at Dublin Middle School, another series of wins, a lot of good memories and the same man at the helm of a great tradition in Pulaski County.
