Tupman: The team will look really good next year as well. We will have really strong incoming freshman and sophomores. The track community is growing, and Coach Eckert and Coach Behrens deserve the credit for growing this track program.

VYPE: What’s your message to your teammates and coaches
Tupman: My message to my coaches and teammates. I am so incredibly proud of you all words can’t even describe. My coaches have helped me push on days where I feel like I can’t, my teammates have helped me run not just to run, but to run and push my body to the maximum levels I can run. My teammates and coaches always have each other’s backs and I seriously can’t imagine myself in another track program other than Bixby High School Track. This team is family to me, and I thank God every day that I was able to meet such incredible people.
