This is the last meet before the team goes to regionals in Newton on Feb. 1.
“We have a pretty good streak going,” Duke said. “We’ve won our last three meets, and we have a pretty strong team. Regionals is always difficult, and a lot of the teams we’ll be competing against, we haven’t played at all this season, so there’s some uncertainty there, but we’ve been doing really well this season.”
