The boys’ league meet started with an early deficit. The girls’ season started with uncertainty. But as Saturday showed, it’s not the beginning that matters.
“We’ve always tried to perform our best at the end. What’s great about Tokay is the kids know how to finish,” said Tigers coach Courtney Porter, whose two varsity clubs posted solid runner-up finishes at the Tri-City Athletic League championships. “They’re not going to give up. They’re going to do their best job.”
