Junior Natalie Chaparro finished second in the Junior Varsity division Thursday in the District 12-5A meet at Norbuck Park. Chaparro, who is not eligible to run varsity this season, finished in 24:43.

The North Dallas varsity girls finished fifth and the varsity boys finished seventh in the team competition.

“All the times improved every week,” said North Dallas coach Troy Power, who started with the teams in early August. “Besides the girls finishing fifth out of seven teams with that being a very good accomplishment, the boys times have improved by very good strides as well.”

While the season is over for the Bulldogs, it’s the final meet for Power and several seniors. He taught and coached Janette Lopez, Abigail Aldape, Edith Cervantes and Filipos Tesfamichael as freshmen in the classroom and in cross country and softball.

“I’m going to miss them,” he said in an email.  “They [seniors] are all around GREAT students.

“I am excited about all those returning [boys and girls], and hope that we can continue to improve in all areas.”
