REGION IV CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONS
Zaine Leal will make a return trip to the Cross Country State Championships after earning a qualifying berth at the Region IV event on Monday, October 25 at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
Leal, a state qualifier in 2019, narrowly missed out in 2020. The senior is a three-time regional finalist.
The Mavericks were 19th overall as a team while the Lady Mavs finished 17th at the event.
“The girls region is packed with tons of talent,” PHS Head Coach John Hernandez said. “I know the heat did affect our kids. The boys will bounce back next year, only having one senior on the team.
“I expect the team to return to regionals next year and to keep the tradition going.”
Regional results are as follows: Zaine Leal, 20th, 18:33.51, Dylan Ortiz, 59th, 19:45.42, Matthew Frazier, 130th, 22:10.20, Romeo Vega, 151st, 23:19.53, CJ Garza, 161st, 24:42.46.
Girls’ results are as follows: Esmeralda Gonzalez, 70th, 14:14.78, Ebony Garza, 100th, 14:50.67, Tayla Elizondo, 103rd, 14:58.22, Layla Torres, 108th, 15:02.69, Natalie Vega, 117th, 15:10.27, Saynika Weaver, 119th, 15:12.81, Giselle Castillo, 149th, 16:27.76.
