The Medina girls’ cross country team placed second in the district cross country race held at the Arms of Hope on Monday, Oct. 14, qualifying the team to compete in regionals on Oct. 28, officials said.
The men’s cross country team placed just out of the ranking needed to move on to regionals with a fourth-place finish, while both the JV men and girls’ teams came in first in their competitions.
Those were fun finishes to watch for Medina officials. The performance of the JV teams shows great things are to come for Medina in cross country.
The girls’ varsity team had a great showing at the 1A district race, and coaches were super proud of how they competed from start to finish.
The boys’ varsity team also has a bright future, officials said. Medina’s Nate Aguilar came close to qualifying as an individual for the regional competition but missed out by two places.
The exciting part is that I know how great the girls’ and boys’ teams can be. We will continue to work hard and make it a point to be at the top of the district each year moving forward.
The fun and exciting part is that the numbers we had for cross country this year were great. That is a goal we set out to make happen from day one.
You win over time with numbers. It is exciting to see the numbers grow, and I only see it growing more in the future.
The cross country regional meet will be in Corpus Christi. Bandera’s varsity girls’ team will run at 8:30 a.m. in the Region IV competition for a chance to move on to the state competition.
