Harvey said he was not surprised that his boys’ team is making a repeat trip to the regional meet.
“They were there last year, so I felt if we stayed healthy we could get back,” he said. “I told the kids earlier in the year – and I was trying not to be overconfident – that we had been there and know what it takes to get there again.
“Since we have been to regionals so many times, our next goal is to take that next step to the state meet.”
Harvey said the boys are also in a tough region.
“I think the boys have a chance to reach state,” he said. “But we have to run better than we did in district. I think we will run a lot better.
“I have several of the boys who did not run as well as they can at the district meet, but I expect them all to bounce back and perform like are they are capable of doing at the regional meet.”
The Class 3A state cross country meet will be Saturday, Nov. 9 at Old Settler’s Park in Round Rock.
