“It was really nice to get a win tonight. This kind of was a tune-up meet for Genesee County. We’ll definitely be working this week to prepare for that,” said coach Kevin McGlashen.
The Lady Cavs also lost at home on Sept. 19 to Midland Dow and next compete at the Genesee County Meet today, tomorrow and Saturday at Fenton.
“We’ll probably be in the middle of the pack. I don’t know that we’ll get enough kids in to move up really high. Plus, there are some excellent girls teams like Brandon, Grand Blanc and Fenton that are all going to place high,” McGlashen said. “Kearsley is also pretty good this year, so they may be fighting with Powers up top.” — M.S.
