This last Saturday the Junior High ran at Poth.  We had worked really hard during practice and we saw the results at the meet.  Three seventh grade boys competed.  

Johnny Gonzales              13:52   13th

Seth Elizondo                     14:32   24th

Zach Rodriguez                 15:50   32nd

Both boys teams started the race with cool weather but half way through the race the skies opened up and the rain made the last mile a bit slippery.   The 8th grade boys placed 3rd as a team and were only 12 points behind the champion team of Pleasanton.  We had two boys medal and these two remind me of watching Brandon Lacy and Sebastian Benavides run when they were in 8th grade. 

Joshua Montes                 11:59   3rd-Medalist

Paul Tomlinson                 12:00  4th –Medalist

Eli Garrison                         13:43  13th

Gage Eichman                   14:44  26th

Cody Lopez                         14:51  27th

AJ Marin                              17:35  38th

Wyatt Conover                 19:40  40th   This was the first race Wyatt has run under 20 minutes.  He probably would have been under 19 without the rain. 

Saving the best for last, the 8th grade girls did something that has not been done since 2006.  They won the meet and came home with the championship trophy.  Two of the girls finished in the top 10 and the others finished together. 

Clarrisa Cantu                    13:18  2nd-Medalist

Monique Covarubbias   15:43  23rd

Shelbie Elizondo               15:49  24th

If you see our runners congratulate them on their great work.  We have two races left in the season at Bandera.  District is next Wednesday.  We are working hard to try to represent Lytle CC well and bring home championships.  Thank you to Coach Judge and Coach Ruiz for allowing me to take the Junior High to Poth.   In the last 10 years we could not have accomplished anything without the fine support given by the transportation department.  This is my 10th season to drive the CC teams across Texas and The Transportation Department has supported us in every mile.
