“I feel the pressure especially from my coach because he puts a lot of responsibility on me,” Langer said. “When I started varsity I barely talked so they really had to encourage me to be loud and yell and tell the guys what they are doing and what they can improve on. It's a lot of responsibility.
“I try not to yell but my teammates seem to want me to, which I really don't understand but it gets them motivated, so whatever helps the team.”
After finishing in first place in their early race Saturday, the team had to gear up for two more races later in the day.
“We are feeling pretty good today,” Jablonski, 17, said. “This is a 100 percent team sport so we all depend on each other to win.”
Langer said he's grateful to be a part of the team in any way possible.
“It's really fun out there,” he said. “I'm just happy to help.”
