Our Gator High School Cross Country team ran at Liberty Hill this past weekend (9/11/21)
We ran well and the boys team finished in 2nd place at the meet. We were missing our only senior this week. He was taking the SAT this weekend. I thought our Freshman Max Rodriguez and Marcus Werkheiser stepped up and ran their best times of the year. Again, Josh Cirotto for the boys and Maeve Milligan for the girls, won the 4A JV division races.
Our Gator Girls finished in 4th place, while we were missing two of our varsity girls. I thought the rest of the team stepped up and ran some of their best times of the year. Kaylee Pestow stepped up big time as the only senior running this week. Not just by running her best time of the year but, in her leadership with our girl’s team. Victoria Herandez ran her best time of the year and cracked into the top 7 times for our girls.
Overall we had a good day. As they say, we got better today. We just need to keep getting better every day. We are a month out from our District Meet. That is the day we have been working for since last Spring. We are very proud of our Gators' efforts and the way they conduct themselves at the meets.
