Coming into the state Prep B indoor championship meet last Saturday, Len Klepack wasn’t expecting his Stuart Country Day team to end up with the title.
“I thought we would maybe be in the top three because Villa Walsh would have too much distance strength; I think they won four of the last five titles and it would be very difficult to beat them,” said Stuart head coach Len Klepack in assessing the competition that was held in the Lavino Field House at the Lawrenceville School. “We planned on getting the most points that we could with the squad we had.” more
