Coach Crain enjoys that he now coaches at the school where he participated in athletics.
“I enjoy working with the athletes so they can achieve goals as an individual athlete and help work to develop an entire program,” said Coach Crain. Some of his goals for the season are to help the girls continue to get personal bests and continue to beat their times from the previous year.
