Last Year’s Record: The Warriors finished second in the Central Suburban League North Division a year ago and fifth overall. They placed fourth in the Regional and 12th at the Sectional.
Last Year’s Highlights: Alex Gold placed 35th at the State Meet.
Season Opener: The Warriors open their season with the Lake County Invitational August 29 at the Lakewood Forest Preserve near Wauconda.
Season Outlook: “After last season where injuries and flu hit us hard in October, I cannot speculate (on the coming season),” Coach Jeremy Kauffman said. “The seven we have on the line at Regionals is clearly a long way out and we are not deep enough right now.” Deerfield does not have seven runners that can meet the state standards necessary to navigate a season successfully, according to Kauffman. “They are trying to reach that but we have a long way to go,” he said. “I simply do not know who those runners will be yet.”.
