Rainy Day Run

Thunder and Lightning!
Storms moved through south San Antonio as the Varsity teams should have been warming up for this week’s SAISD meet (10/24), back again on the grounds of the San Antonio State School.  NISD procedures require athletes to stay on the buses until 30 minutes after the last sighted lightening.  Although the meet organizers opted to start the races at the posted times, instead of shortening their warm up, several schools including Clark decided to wait and run both Varsity and JV in the JV races.  Shantel Swift and Glynnis Meade placed 1st and 2nd in 12:32 and 12:35, with Valerie Vacek next in 14:20, then a whole pack of Cougars – Erika Parsons, Brittany Perez, Ariel Schmid and Lauren Porter – one right after another with times from 15:04 to 15:07 for the slightly long 2 mile race.  Austin Wells easily won the Boys 3 mile, running 16:37, with Ryan Pavlich in 8th (17:59) then Nicholas Moseley 18:36, Aidan Pierce 19:16, Mark Pena 19:20, Philip Ross 19:21 and Daniel Carcamo 19:27.
Next up is the District meet on Saturday, Oct 30th with races starting slightly later than normal – 9am for Varsity Girls, 9:30am for Varsity Boys, 10am JV Girls, 10:30am for JV Boys.  The meet will run on the grounds of Hardin Athletic Complex, ending in Gus Stadium.  Come cheer on our Cougars!
