Last year the Natalia Lady Mustangs qualified for a second straight year for Regionals. The Mustangs secured their third straight regional appearance. Both were able to compile 3rd place team finishes at the 26-3A meet led by Brianna Bernal and Joel Rios.
“Overall, I was proud of how successful we were as a team and how hard all of our runners fought, ensuring that our seniors would make it to Regional one last time,” said Coach Nelson last season.
