North Dallas coach Troy Power has high expectations for the District 11-5A meet on Monday morning at Norbuck Park. The district meet starts about 9 a.m. with varsity and JV at 11 a.m.

“I am pleased with the kids progress and times,” Power said after the Pinkston meet Saturday. “My expectations for district are for them to give it all they have and good things will come.”
Because of injuries, Power said he has not decided on the runners for the boys and girls varsity teams.

In Saturday’s meet, Vincent Vo finished the three-mile course in 18:22, followed by Jorge Gutierrez in 19:09. Abigail Aldape led the girls varsity with a time of 25:14.
