The weather once again has decided to dictate the chance to run during this 2018 Cross Country season. Unfortunately, after a lengthy, early-morning drive to Round Rock to run on the State course the meet was delayed, then ultimately canceled due to lightning.
Only the JV Arabians got a taste of running with over 600 competitors, the largest field they have seen all season. They held their own on a very difficult course, placing 36th out of 50 teams.
Alexis Shook was the Arabians top finisher with a time of 15:19, followed by Isabel Osorio 15:25, Lacey Shook 15:36, Corinne Fowler 15:50, Grace Singleton 16:38, Lorena Chavera 16:51, and Jenysee Good 17:09.
