DILLEY CROSS COUNTRY
In a season-opener fitting for the strange year that 2020 has presented, Dilley kicked off the cross country year amid a field of confusion at the Randolph Invitational Meet on Saturday, September 12 in Universal City.
Competing on a course that was less than a mile long, DHS Head Cross Country Coach Victor Flores said the event’s layout led to confusion among runners and resulted in competitors running the course incorrectly.
“The course was less than a mile long and there was confusion among the runners as they ran the race since they had to cross the path of the course several times,” Flores said. “Some runners did not run the three or two miles correctly.”
Despite the confusion, Dilley’s Isabel Hernandez finished third in the varsity girls’ division while Meia Meza was fourth.
Dilley had a pair of girls competing in the junior varsity girls’ division with Danisa Tijerina finishing 12th and Gia Gutierrez was 16th.
On the boys’ side, Dilley had a single athlete place as Xavier Hernandez was third overall in the eighth grade division.
In the boys 8th grade division Xavier Hernandez placed third.
The Dilley cross country team will return to action this Saturday as they compete at the Ingram Warrior Cross Country Meet near Kerrville.
