    Middle and distance relays have always been one of Scott City’s strengths and this season should be no exception with the Beavers returning nearly everyone from their state championship 4x400m and 4x800m relays. (Above) Isaac Tarango (left) and Kaden Wr

Powerhouse Beavers are focused on championship repeat in Class 3A

Coming off their second state title in three years, and with many state qualifiers returning for another season, expectations are high for the Scott Community High School boys.

In fact, the athletes have their sights set on nothing less than another Class 3A state championship.

“I know the boys have pretty high expectations, but there’s a lot of season between now and state,” cautions head coach Jim Turner. “Plus, about 15 teams that were (Class) 4A a year ago are now 3A, so we’ll have to see how that affects things.

“It’s easy to assume that we’ll walk to another title, but it’s more important for us to stay focused on what it takes to get better. What happens at the end of the season will take care of itself.”

While that’s typical coach-speak, it’s hard not to be excited about the prospects for a Beaver squad that could be even better than the team that pulled away for a team title even with alternates competing on the championship 4x400m and 4x800m relays.
