Expectations are high among boys track team members and their coaches, even though the roster number of 26 athletes is not great. “We have a lot of punch in a few boys this year,” said coach Jonathan Ball. “It can be a very exciting year.” In the contingent that turned out, Keith Williams is being tabbed the athlete with the most potential to make noise in the season-ending Division III state tournament. “He put in a spectacular offseason going to several pole vault camps, including the most prestigious one in the nation,” said Ball. “Based on what he has done at camps and a few offseason meets, it looks like Keith will not only contend for a state title, but be one of the best vaulters in the state, regardless of (school) classification.”
