Cross-Country District Meet (10-21-2014)
Injuries had plagued the Lady Mule varsity cross-country team all season and the District 2-3A Meet on Lubbock’s Mae Simmons Park Course was no different. But the Lady Mules ran the two-mile course with Jazmine Garza placing eighth individually with a time of 13 minutes and 38 seconds.
Other Lady Mules competing were Mireya Ruvulcaba, Yvonne Diaz, Dani Diaz, Aimee Rosas, Cassidy Cage and Noemi Herrera.
Evan Paez led the Mules as well as all the other competitors around the three-mile course to win the individual gold medal with a time of 17:09. Michael Lozano, Christian Paez and Noah Del Toro also competed for the Mules.
“We could not have placed an order for a better running day,” said cross-country coach Edie Niblett. “It was an absolutely perfect day. Our athletes went to compete and they represented Muleshoe very well.”
Jazmine Garza and Evan Paez will both compete October 31 in the Region I Cross-Country Meet. The Meet will also be held on the Mae Simmons Park Course. The Class 3A girls will run at 11:00 AM and the boys will compete at 11:30 AM.
The JV Lady Mules won the District 2-3A Meet with five of the seven Lady Mules placing in the top ten. Ruby Regalado, Jazmin Arellano, Brianna Barron, Lilli Barrera, Blanca Ramirez, Brianna Velasquez and Ricarda Elizalde are the members of the JV Lady Mules.
Malachi Rodriguez won the JV Boys individual gold medal and Josh Mata finished fifth in the meet.
