Cross Country Winners

Meade and Wells

Wet grounds made for challenging races today at the UTSA Invitational Cross Country meet, held at Brooks City Base.  Sophomore Austin Wells led the Varsity Boys, placing 7th in a fast 15:49.  Junior Aidan Pierce finished next in 17:54, followed by two freshman, Nicholas Moseley 19:05 and Daniel Carcamo 19:11, then sophomore Harry MacTough 19;13 and junior Mark Pena 19:15.

Senior Glynnis Meade and junior Shantel Swift ran in the Girls Gold division, which for the first time was a 5k (3.1 miles) like the boys.  Glyn finished 9th in 19:18 and Shantel was 11th in 19:26, just missing out on a medal.   The remaining Varsity Girls ran in the 5A 2 mile race – freshman Amanda De La Fuente in 13:46, senior Katherine Ritchie in 13:55 and sophomore Valerie Vacek in 14:23.
Austin, Glynnis and Shantel have now met the National 5K Silver Standard of 16:30 / 19:45 – congratulations!

Junior Varsity participated in the Central Catholic Relays at Mission Country Park earlier in the week, actually passing a baton between the 3-member teams, girls each running 1.5 miles and boys 2 miles.  Next Saturday, all runners will be at the SAISD meet on the grounds of the San Antonio State School.
