Congratulations to the latest additions to the Italy Coaching Family. I know the student-athletes of IISD will be served well by these fine coaches. They are also walking into a situation with hungry, young athletes who are ready to accept the challenge of Class AA. I know that with such a combination pulling together, the successes of the past two years will continue to be maintained for years to come.

Good luck to all, Students and Coaches alike. Go Gladiators!
