Uvaldeans run for top district honors in 2019
Uvalde High School enjoyed success in both girls’ cross-country and boys’ cross-country competition this past school year.
With many returning runners from last year’s team, UHS head cross-country coach Libby Guzman looks forward to more success in 2019.
Last season, the Lobos had their string of five consecutive district team cross-country titles snapped.
The Lobos finished as the runner-up team in new District 28-5A.
They finished a close second in the team standings behind the Medina Valley girls.
“We had high hopes to continue our streak. We fell eight points shy of winning our sixth district title in a row,” said Coach Guzman.
“Medina Valley had a strong team. We knew going into the district meet we would be the underdogs, but we loved the challenge,” said Guzman. “I am proud of the fact that we competed well against them. Our girls ran well.”
Coach Guzman loses two runners from last season’s team, including 2019 UHS seniors Andrea Perez and Chelsy Moreno, but she will return all of the other runners from last season.
