Howdy Ya’ll,
 
We began the Junior High Cross Country Season on Saturday with a 1 mile race at New Braunfels.  For the first race of the year we represented Lytle well.  The results were all individual times and they did not score a team finish.  The seventh and eighth graders ran against each other.  Some of the seventh graders would have probably medaled if they had separated the grades.  Two weeks from now in Hondo we will have 7th graders running against only seventh graders for medals.

Edson and Jessica now have the fastest time for a Junior High Cross Country runner from Lytle at the New Braunfels course.  We have been running at this race for 4 years.  As you can see we still need some runners to have a team for the girls.  Thank you for all your support that you give these athletes.
