MCS girls get new coach

(Continued)

Juniors Will Wilcox and Brian Atwell will be top throwers for Milford this season.

“I see big things from them this year,” said Prouty.

Mike Miller is a sophomore sprinter who hopefully will be healthy enough to be on the track this season.

“He is one of our better sprinters if he can stay away from injuries,” said Prouty.

One of the biggest holes to fill is that of Elijah Coley, who was a standout hurdler for the Wildcats last season.

“It will be tough replacing him,” said Prouty.

In terms of strengths this season, Prouty sees his team being most competitive in the throws, sprints, and high jump.

“We don’t have a large team, but I’m looking to see what kind of growth we can accomplish this season,” said Prouty.

Looking to the Tri-Valley, a number of teams will be tough this year.

“CV-S has the numbers, GMU-Morris will be strong with numbers and good athletes, Edmeston has a strong distance program and Downsville has good sprinters,” said Prouty. “Each team brings their own strengths.”

Time will tell as the season unfolds and the competitions begin.

“I’m happy with our work ethic and attitude,” said Prouty. “We’re anxious to get on a track and be in weather above 42 degrees.”
