COTULLA CROSS COUNTRY
Rodriguez injured along challenging course.
A large meet and a challenging course greeted Cotulla last week as they competed at the Bandera cross country meet on Saturday, September 10.
Injuries also hit the Cowgirls team as their top runner Carisia Rodriguez was hampered by a sprained ankle during the event. Rodriguez finished the race and was 41st overall in her division.
“This was the most challenging meet this season with 44 teams present and a great race course,” CHS Head Cross Country Coach Jose Olvera said. “A few of our runners saw improved times this week and our top runner suffered a sprained ankle in the first mile of her race but was resilient and finished 41st.
“I would really like to thank the parents that support our runners every week,” Olvera said.
Rodriguez was 41st in a field of 119 runners in the varsity girls’ division. Alessandra Garcia was 73rd, Isabella Gonzales finished 88th, Jaylan Del Toro was 96th, Maggie Alba was 100th and Maxie Kutzer placed 102nd.
Paul Gonzales was 61st in a field of 101 runners in the varsity boys’ division.
In junior high action, Jesus Alcocer was 20th for the eighth grade boys while John Michael Sanchez was 68th in a field of 80 runners.
Julianna Garcia was 72nd for the eighth grade girls while Elijah Bryan was 48th in the seventh grade boys’ field.
Jackeline Alba was 45th in the seventh grade girls’ field, Leila Jordan Olvera finished 48th and Carina Rodriguez came in 66th in a field of 109 runners.
Cotulla will be in action this week at the grueling and very competitive Islander Splash Cross Country Invitational on the campus of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi.
