Coyotes, Lobos pile up the points
The first day of the District 29-5A track-and-field meet was a good one for both the Uvalde Coyotes and the Uvalde Lobos Thursday at Floresville.
They racked up a lot of points in the field events and the 3,200-meter run, and they qualified many athletes for the running finals set for yesterday.
Coach Albert Tijerina’s Coyotes totaled 81 points to put them in first place in the team points standings after the first seven events of the meet.
Eric De La Rosa claimed two first-place medals for UHS. He placed first in both the shot put and the discus. He put the shot 46 feet and 11.75 inches, while he threw the discus 146 feet and 10.25 inches.
Chris Embers, Isidro Escamilla, and Orlando Castañeda made it a one-two-three sweep in the long jump. They had respective jumps of 20 feet and 7 inches, 20 feet and one-half inch, and 19 feet and 5.5 inches.
