Medina Journal-Register — Underclassmen dominate the roster as the Medina High boys track squad preps for the upcoming Niagara-Orleans League season.

“It’s a very young group but we’re hoping to improve as the year goes along,” said coach Jeff Dole. “We have some kids who can be very competitive and we’ve got a lot of kids who can so a lot of things.”
