“Yes, it was extremely tough,” Coach Troy Power said in an email. “At least we were competitive in an very tough field.  I’m very proud of them because they never quit through all this Covid stuff and hung in there with those schools who had places to run when lockdowns were in place.”

Senior Judson Greer of Melissa won the boys race in 14:53.98, and junior Adele Clarke of Celina won the girls race in 11:19.42.

The varsity girls  team at the District 12-4A meet included (from left) Anais Balderas, Emyli Estrada, Anaya Balderas, Coach Troy Power, Flavia Santamaria, Iliana Morfin, Rosalyn Cisneros, and Kelly Maldonado.
