SANFORD – After consecutive losing seasons, Sanford Meridian is confident it has the skill level to contend for a Jack Pine Conference title again.
The Mustangs feel they have the skill level and are poised for a bounce back this fall with a large core of returning players.

“We’re very dangerous on offense to make big plays, and hopefully our defense can make big stops when we need to, and that’ll be all we need to do,” Sanford Meridian senior Brett Barriger said.
“I think speed will benefit for us a lot, just throwing and running, and just be able to keep up with some other teams,” added Sanford Meridian senior Hunter Merillat.
Prior to back-to-back losing campaigns, the Mustangs had posted nine straight winning seasons from 2007-2015.
Sanford Meridian opens its season at home against Midland Bullock Creek on Friday, Aug. 24. Bullock Creek won last year’s meeting 26-20.
