Starpoint trio finding an extra gear in final bid for state berths
January 31, 2023


PENDLETON - The seniors on a high school athletics program are like the alphas of a wolf pack.

A rare breed, these are the seniors who oversee the entire group and lead by example. With a deep pride for the program, these are also the seniors who make sure no one gets left behind on the season's journey.

That could best describe newly-crowned state-dual champion Starpoint's senior trio of captains - Matt Caldwell, James Leuer Jr. and C.J. Uptegrove - and what they have provided to the program for the last handful of years. This season, Starpoint head coach Steve Hart said the trio have all delivered when called upon.
