” I am proud of our athletes no matter the outcome, because I see all the work and dedication that they put in when there is nobody watching. Each athlete has their own challenges and the most rewarding part, for me, is to see them reach goals that we have set forth for the season. The countless hours of running and sacrifice are things that the average person just does not understand. All four of the athletes will be back next year and we have others working hard as well so our staff is excited to see what the future hold,” said Miller Grove Secondary Principal and Athletic Director Gary Billingsley.
