Devine Golf Course hosting cross country meet Sept. 15

Devine Cross Country will host its Cross Country Invitational on Saturday, September 15th. The meet will begin at 8:45 am, and like all events held in Devine the runners welcome the love and support of the Devine community.
“The location of the meet has changed from the field across from the student parking lot at DHS to the Devine Golf Course,” stated Head Coach Khera Vay. “The opportunities to switch provides a more challenging course for the Warhorses and Arabians as well as for the visiting teams.”
Aside from the more challenging course due to its inclines, declines, and its varying terrain, the course allows not only the runners to “enjoy” shade and a more scenic view while running the 2 to 3 mile course, it allows the community who show up in support to enjoy those identical attributes.
Mayor Bill Herring knowing the future of Devine rests solely on the shoulders of some of the runners participating in this meet has graciously permitted this meet to occur on the still-renovating golf course.
If you have not had the opportunity to drive by the golf course’s clubhouse or along the fairways and greens that line the nearby streets, please take the opportunity to do so.
Rob Flores and his working crew are determined to make the course presentable and playable once again. What Flores’s team has accomplished in only a short amount of time is incredible.
With over 600 kids scheduled to run on September 15, Coach Vay is asking for volunteers to assist in making the meet of those participating the best meet of their entire season.
“We need a large number of volunteers to ensure the meet is successful,” Vay continued. “If you are willing to help, in any capacity, please let me know. Your presence is greatly appreciated.”
To offer your assistance, please call or email either Coach Vay (432-940-1113 or Coach Beaty (830-534-8554 You will not be turned down!
