"After three events being cancelled in the past month, we are primed and ready to race!  The team is very excited to finally get the chance to compete as a unit this weekend. Senior Day is always great, with families and seniors all celebrating together.  But this senior class in particular has been the heart of this team through a lot of changes, and it will be a very meaningful day for the team."
