Once again Milford will present a strong track and field teams, as coach Czar Bloom continues to maintain an enthusiastic atmosphere within the program. On the girls side look for senior Destiny Sivels to continue her leadership and improvement in the sprints, anchoring relay teams that are always a force to be reckoned with. Another girl to keep an eye on is senior Alexis Groce, Groce is coming off strong fall and winter campaigns, in which she excelled in middle distance disciplines.
On the boys side keep an eye out for rising standout Ryan Thomas, who won both the triple jump and the long jump in the DIAA indoor championships this winter. Thomas is becoming a “must see” type of athlete for the Buccaneers as he continues to improve in the high jump as well. James Hagen has been steadily improving in the pole vault and could have a big season. With Henry Phalen entering his senior season, look for Milford to be strong in the distance events as well.
Milford hosts Seaford in their first meet of the season, Tuesday, March 26 at 3:30 pm.
