#TheSeason2020-21: University (Orange City)

Hey guys!

The work continues. We are bringing back, for its seventh year, #TheSeason. We didn’t do these first year, but have ever since. It’s something nobody else does. We compile all season records and write a wrapup for each team. To get them completed more quickly, we are summarizing these a bit more than in seasons past.

Today, we wrap up 3A-District 2, and 3A for the coverage area, with University (Orange City). We will, as we have the past few seasons, work up more records for the rest of 3A as the summer months go on, but as far as #TheSeason goes that’s it for 3A.

Win/loss record: 5-6 (boys)/1-0 (girls) in dual meets reported to Matmen. There is a quad meet on the schedule on February 3 that wasn’t reported but remains on Track, but I don’t see a gap in records that told me it was for sure contested.
