Southwest Meet winners

Wells - Swift - Meade

The Cross Country season is off and running!  Rain canceled the Southwest meet last year, and the team wondered if Friday’s showers would cause a repeat as the course is below street level.  But Saturday dawned with clear, 70 degree skies – a beautiful day for early September in San Antonio.  Taking advantage of the situation were a trio of Cougars – Glynnis Meade was 3rd (11:05.3) and Shantel Swift, 4th (11:06.8) for the girls race (approx 1.9 miles), and Austin Wells, 4th(14:52.4) for the boys race (approx 2.95 miles).  The girls placed 7th out of 26 teams, with scoring added by Katherine Ritchie, Amanda De La Fuentes, and Valerie Vacek.  Lauren Porter and Catherine Seifert rounded out the Varsity team.  The boys team were 15th out of 33 teams, with Tyrell Lewis, Aidan Pierce, Harry MacTough, and Nicholas Moseley scoring, followed by Daniel Carcamo and JR Guajardo.  Both teams include several new runners, including a few Freshman running as Cougars for the first time.  It was an exciting day for all!
