Tomorrow morning at Corpus Christi, the Uvalde Lobos will compete in the Class 5A Region IV cross-country meet.
Action in the Class 5A girls’ race at Dr. Jack Dugan Family Soccer and Track Stadium is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.
Coach Libby Guzman’s Lobos recently captured the fourth consecutive district girls’ cross-country team championship for Uvalde High School.
The Lobos finished first in the district team standings with 33 points in competition hosted by Southside High School.
“We are very proud to have brought home another district title in cross country,” said Guzman. “After racing well at Bandera in a pre-district meet, I knew the Lobos had a chance to win the district title, if the girls just ran their best race. As it turned out, all seven girls recorded their personal-best times of the season at district.
“We look forward to competing against the best runners in the region,” said Guzman. “We have a good group of girls. They have worked hard throughout the season. They know that hard work is the key to success.”
Kayden Carrasco won the district’s individual championship. Carrasco placed first with her time of 19 minutes and 40.4 seconds.
Chelsy Moreno placed fourth overall with her time of 20:31.30.
