Reg I Cross-Country Meet (11-1-2014)
Evan Paez qualified for the Texas State Cross-Country Meet Saturday on the Mae Simmons Park Course in Lubbock. Paez complete the three-mile course in a personal best time of 17 minutes 2.56 seconds as the fifth place individual qualifier.
There were 163 boys running in the Region I Meet from 38 schools. Paez will compete in the Texas State Meet the morning of November 8 on the winding and narrow Round Rock Course.
Jazmine Garza competed in the girls division of the Region I Meet. She ran against 175 girls and finished with a time of 14:04.00. Garza did not qualify for the State Meet but will return next year to lead the Lady Mule team as a Senior.
“Both Jazmine (Garza) and Evan (Paez) ran very well in the Region I Meet,” said Muleshoe cross-country coach Edie Niblett. “The best news is both runners will return next year to compete. Evan is just a sophomore and Jazmine is a currently a junior.”
“They will both be great leaders for our teams. We are already looking forward to next season and certainly want to wish Evan the very best on his trip to the Texas State Meet.”
