Jags win district cross-country title
CASTROVILLE -- Members of the Floresville High School cross-country teams traveled to Medina Valley last week and made a great showing in the District 29-4A meet.
In varsity girls competition, senior Elizabeth Montelongo finished first to capture individual gold, and to lead the Jaguars to a first-place team finish. Freshman Emily Cude finished fifth overall, and junior Ashlee Aicher was sixth to capture an individual medal and help the team to a win. Senior Ashlyn Laskowski finished 13th, junior Hannah Fite was 15th, and juniors Victoria Mayorga and Rebecca Flores helped round out the Jaguar effort.
On the boys side, the Tigers finished second in the team standings. Senior Matthew Anderson led the team with his seventh-place finish, followed by sophomore Steven Ramsey in 12th place. Seniors Derek Moczygemba and Patrick Hinojosa finished 17th and 19th, respectively, and junior Sean Moy rounded out the top 20. Junior Brandon Garcia and senior Marcos Ibarra also ran for the varsity Tiger team.
In junior varsity competition, the Tigers finished first overall, and the Jaguars tied for second place.
“Our greatest strength was our ability to run together as a team, and finish as closely together as possible,” said Head Coach Aubrey Lindberg. “These kids really ran with their hearts, and left everything they had out there on the course. I could not be more proud of the effort and fight of the Floresville cross-country athletes.”
The regional cross-country meet is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2, and Floresville will be represented by both the girls and boys teams.
