Mustangs clearly are on track

By Neil H. Devlin, Mullen Sports Information Director
Coming off a no-season in 2020, Mullen boys and girls, topped by Agur Dwol, have material to contend.
(Fourth in a series of previews for the new Season D.)

Mullen girls track and field is among those in a long line that saw 2020 as a season of opportunity.

That is, until the season was cancelled because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic …

“We would have been a contender in state last year,” Mustangs girls head coach Caitlin Able said.
Able and boys coach Thal Wood have put together an experienced staff and have been working to build program roster numbers.

The missed season has hurt, but the Mustangs are set to rebound behind the two alumni.

For girls, Able said the Mustangs’ strength will lie with Agur Dwol, the No. 2 indoor triple-jumper nationally and Colorado champion as a freshman; jumper and hurdler Mikaela Henderson; sprinters Kaleah Mitchell-Ruff and Emma Vigil; longer sprinter Sophie Hollingsworth; and hurdler-jumper Kilah Freelon.

“We have talent in quite a lot of girls,” Able said. “We can contend.”

In boys, Woods expects big things from Jaxon Heil and Kyle Krebs, both sprinters.

He said he’s also looking for help from members of the football team “to figure out where our talent lies.”

While both teams remain unsure of their numbers for a season that for the first time will head into late June and go head-to-head with club competition, Woods said it will be relieving “to just get back to regular competition.”
