ATC Preview

ATC returns a young squad of ladies that were three points shy of a State title in 2018. With Pecos also returning an equally capable and youthful team, 2A girls should be the tightest of any championship this year. ATC top five all finishing in the top 15 and yet still hoisting a runner-up finish is remarkable. Podium finishes for all members of this returning squad on the track this spring ranging from the 400m-3200m. ATC should be proud to consider themselves at the top of the sqauds dwelling within the 1A-2A classification which includes upwards of 40 schools. Expect the young, experienced ATC crew to be in 2A state title contention this year seeking their 2nd in the past five years.
