The ascendance of this team over the last three years is nothing short of astonishing: from nowhere, they finished 6th in the Division 4 State Meet in 2014, 5th in 2015, and then a dominating win in 2016. Although the Dragons lost three seniors from that squad, including star Jared Rodriguez, there is enough depth back for them to be a serious contender for a repeat win. Not surprisingly, the team has a very strong record of year-to-year improvement over that stretch, which is part of what allows us to project them to be strong again this fall. This will be a different sort of team with Rodriguez gone, boasting a tight 1-4 pack. If they can solidify runner 5 through 7, watch out!
