"I've seen some determination in a lot of freshmen," he said. "We're a very young, freshmen-heavy team."
Elizabeth Falconburg is already knocking on the door of the school record in the 400 as a freshman, and Brown says she's got "a legitimate chance at making state."
Falconburg leads a talented crew of mid-distance runners, along with junior Lauren Lynch and sophomore Emily Wortman. Lynch will primarily be used in the 400 while Wortman runs the 800, with Falconburg likely running in both races.
Wortman is also a talented performer in the mile, and freshman Carson Fonner should be a contributor in the distance races as well. Between those four, and a maybe a few others, Brown hopes to piece together a solid 4x800 relay team despite a less than robust roster.
"We're a little thin on numbers in distance," he said, "but we've got some quality runners."
St. Anthony's jumpers fit the bill as well; low on depth, but high on talent. Sophomore Madeline McDevitt should be the top high jumper for the Bulldogs, and Brown said she has serious potential.
"She's been working at it, been focused on it," he said. "We're hoping to make some noise with her."
Dammerman could score some points at triple jump, though it is unquestionably a secondary event, while Sara Raglan provides the Bulldogs with a talented long jumper.
Aside from Woltman in the pole vault, sophomore Aly Esker will give St. Anthony some depth in the event.
"She's started off solid," Brown said. "In her first competition, she was only three inches from her best ever."
The throwers will be Ashley Dieztzen, and that's about it. Dietzen will have to be a wrecking crew of one in the discus, with a few other teammates trying their hands in the shot put.
