The meet started with the Varsity Girls and was a very close race. The Varsity Girls pulled off the win in dramatic fashion only winning by 9 points to Mildred. The Team had 38 points to Mildred’s 47 points. The girls were led by Senior Krislynn Westbrook who placed 5th overall and ran a 13:42, next was Freshman Paige Row in 6th who ran a 13:56, and Sophomore Brookelyn Patterson placed 7th and ran a 13:59, then Senior Macy Penix placed 9th who ran a 14:06, Sophomore Madisen Kulsa placed 12th and ran a 14:09, Junior Jeanne Pickett placed 17th and ran a 14:39, and Senior Elexis Porte placed 19th and ran a 14:52.

The next race was the Varsity Boys. One could say the boys pulled off the win in dramatic fashion as well! The varsity boys were meet champions with a perfect score, meaning our top 7 boys finished in the top 7 places.

The JV boys had a long line of purple finishing 13 boys in the top 13 places. There is no such thing as something better than a perfect score, but if there was, this would be it! These boys were led by individual Champ Sophomore Jake Haney who ran a 17:48, closely behind was Senior Fransisco Gomez who placed 2nd and ran a 17:49, next was Sophomore Cooper Reeve who placed 3rd and also ran sub-18 with a time of 17:59, Sophomore Caleb Gonzalez who placed 4th, Junior Danny Stout placed 5th, Junior Joseph Hunter placed 6th, Junior Jackson Byrum placed 7th, Freshman Jaden Stout placed 8th, Sophomore Jimmie Skeeters placed 9th, Sophomore Owen Stahl placed 10th, Junior Cade Adair placed 11th, Junior Cory Smith placed 12th, and Sophomore Scottie Neeper placed 13th.
