Cross-Country @ Sundown (10-4-2014)
Injuries and illness has hit the Muleshoe High School cross-country teams hard and only a few runners made the trip to Sundown for the Roughneck Cross-Country Meet Saturday.
More than a touch of fall was in the air Saturday morning when the Mules and Lady Mules lined up to run in Sundown. Evan Paez brought home the only medal by placing in the top 15 runners. Times and places were not available at press time.
“We were few in numbers today,” said Muleshoe cross-country coach Edie Niblett. “But our kids ran well despite the chilly morning with a winter breeze. Our Varsity and J.V. girls have several injuries and some have the "bug" that is going around school.”
“I appreciate these athletes for getting up this morning and making the trip to Sundown. Hopefully next week in Abernathy we'll be healthy and will have 4 complete teams.”
Christian Paez and Noah Del Toro were the other two Mules joining E. Paez on the almost three-mile course.
Cassidy Cage, Blanca Ramirez and Jazmine Garza represented the Lady Mules racing on the two-mile course. Ruby Regalado and Lillie Barrera ran as JV Lady Mules. Josh Mata, Malachi Rodriguez and Jose Lopez represented the JV Mules.
The teams will travel to Abernathy for the Antelope Cross-Country Meet Saturday October 11.
