SHINER -- The Falls City cross-country teams competed at the district meet Oct. 22 in Shiner. This year was a new alignment for the sport; therefore, the athletes were competing with different schools and on a different course. All athletes competed hard and came out with successful results.

In varsity girls competition, Katie Pollok finished seventh overall, advancing to the regional meet, which was held at UTSA Nov. 3. Taylor Dziuk finished in 11th place, followed by Kayla Kotara in 14th, Sydney Elkins in 32nd, and Sara Moore in 33rd. The varsity girls finished fourth overall in the team standings.

The top three teams advanced to the regional meet, leaving the girls just short. As a matter of fact, second-, third-, and fourth-place teams were separated by 1 point each. This shows how tight the competition was in this district. Weimar took the district title with 62 points, Shiner followed in second place with 93 points, Louise was third with 94 points, and Falls City was fourth with 95 points. Flatonia was fifth with 107 points, and Ganado was the sixth-place team with 112 points.

The Falls City varsity boys team consisted of junior Matt Hons and sophomore Jeremiah Corey. The two ran as individual competitors. Corey came close to the top 10 finishers in 14th, and Hons followed in 26th.

The junior high teams ran that afternoon and took home district titles for both the girls and boys. The junior high girls team consisted of eighth-graders Madison Dziuk, Hanna Foster, and Jordan Lyssy; and seventh-graders Jordan Grier, Annica Lyssy, Deedra VanWinkle, and Bailey Wiatrek.

Five Falls City runners cracked the top 10, including Dziuk in second, Grier in fourth, VanWinkle in sixth, Foster in seventh place, and Jordan Lyssy in ninth. The junior high girls placed first with a team total of 28 points. Second place went to Shiner with 39 points. This year, the junior high girls placed first at every meet they competed in as a team.

The junior high boys also came in first, and the team was comprised of eighth-graders Chance Cochran, Mark Hons, and Santos Ramirez; and seventh-graders Tyler Gonzales and Andrew Malcolm. Top-10 finishers in the boys division were Cochran in first place, Malcolm in third, and Hons in the eighth spot.

“These athletes deserve the utmost respect and recognition for their hard work this year,” said Head Coach Terry Moseley. “Their dedication and work ethic have given them many rewards in and outside of the sport.”
