In other years, the runners would be seeing their third to fourth meet by this point in the season. Due to circumstances beyond their control, the Musketeers just made their first competitive debut last week.
This was a big accomplishment with all the hurdles that the team has had to navigate so far. The biggest challenge this year has been the constant presence of COVID -19 regulations and the fact that meets must be kept smaller. There are also many protocols that need to be carefully followed. The new RBHS COVID Sports Policy has allowed the athletes to finally resume some sense of normalcy and they are so grateful for that!
The team ran this past Tuesday the 8th at Marissa and Thursday the 10th at Chester.
