“We are very proud of our athletes in how they performed and competed against tough competition at district,” PHS Boys Track Coach Julian Hernandez said. “They set a goal out at the beginning of the season to win a district title and they worked hard to achieve that goal.
“We were very pleased with how everyone stepped up and competed. I think most of our athletes made the finals in their individual events. Overall it has been a successful track season, but we are not done yet.”
“Our Lady Mavs did a fantastic job at district,” PHS Head Girls Coach Arlene Silva said of her team’s performance. “They came away with the district championship in a very competitive field.
“All track season our athletes had been improving every week as we headed towards our district meet. They stepped up in every way imaginable, plenty of personal record’s along with some great surprises. They showed tons of grit and heart and carried us over to our second district title in two years.”
