QUOTE FROM THE COACH

“I am extremely happy with the level of effort and competitiveness that the men have shown this track season. We have had some new additions to our Top 10 board and there is a strong energy in the group. I am very grateful for seniors like Adam Jones And Calan Gizelbach, who helped leave this program in a better place. They will be missed, but Flyers forever!” –David Dobson
