Trojan coach Chad White said, “I was very impressed with the effort and attitude of both the boys and girls teams tonight. At this point, we are trying to get as many athletes qualified for Mid Penns and districts as possible and tonight gave us a great idea of what we need to get accomplished in our two remaining meets.”
