La Vernia High School junior Olivia Hinojosa will be making her third straight appearance at the UIL State Track and Field Championships to be held at the University of Texas’ Mike Myers stadium in Austin.

The past two years, Hinojosa has competed in the 3,200-meter run. This year, she has qualified for the 3,200- and the 1,600-meter runs. Hinojosa was tied with former La Vernia High School and University of Texas at San Antonio track and field standout Aimee Jonas for the most athletic state championship appearances (three cross country and two track and field), but now takes the top spot with six total appearances.

This year marked Hinojosa’s first regional gold medal performance in the 1,600-meter run. She came from behind to defeat the top seed, Charlotte Janacek of Sealy, as well as Ashley Tucker of Boerne, who had edged Hinojosa at the 27-28 3A area meet. The 1,600-meter run also included the 2013 regional cross-country champion, Jazmine Garcia of Zapata. Placing a close second was Lytle’s Natalie Cortez, the 3,200-meter gold medalist. At State, Hinojosa will face talented fields in both races that include defending state champion Kelsie Warren of College Station.

“At this next level, they’re all really good,” said Hinojosa’s father, Head Coach Richard Hinojosa. “Olivia has had her best season yet. She’s trained tough, raced smart, and is healthy. I believe she’ll be in the mix in both races.”

The 3,200-meter race is scheduled for Friday, May 9, at 9:20 a.m., while the 1,600-meter event is set for Saturday, May 10, at 2:45 p.m.
