EDYE LEA RELAYS IN PEARSALL
Kebbi, Vaquera in top form for Pearsall as teams open track and field season.
The Lady Mavs were co-champs of the Edye Lea Relays in Pearsall on Friday, February 26 and the Mavs were second in the inaugural track and field meet of the season for Pearsall.
Kiana Kebbi, Pearsall’s top sprinter for the last three years, picked up where she left off despite a pandemic-shortend end to her 2020 season in which she only competed in three meets. She won the 100m and 200m dashes, the 400m dash and triple jump and was also second in the long jump.
Pearsall tied for first at the event with Carrizo Springs as both tallied 185 points. Lytle was third with 136 points and Crystal City was fourth with 49 points.
Pearsall’s sprint relay team was first and the 800m relay team took second at the event.
“Overall, it was a great starting point for our Lady Mavs,” PHS Head Coach Arlene Silva said. “It was exciting to see our team compete on the track again. They showed plenty of mental and physical toughness.
“We saw plenty of personal bests already and we will look to improve every week.”
Jasiah Vaquera led all male athletes with 35.5 points scored.
Pearsall finished with 140 points, finishing behind event champion Carrizo Springs, who scored 201 points at the meet.
Lytle was third with 114 points and Crystal City was fourth with 73 points.
“We are very proud of how we competed in our first meet of the season,” PHS Head Coach Julian Hernandez said. “We had athletes who stepped up when we needed them to and we are very excited about what we can accomplish this year.
“It was a great starting point for our track teams.”
Denied an entire track season a year ago due to the pandemic, Vaquera didn’t skip a beat, winning the long jump, triple jump and high jump events. He also helped the sprint relay team finish second and was fifth in the 200m dash.
