CLYDE LITTLEFIELD TEXAS RELAYS
MAVS’ SPRINT RELAY TEAM IS TENTH; COTULLA’S CHARO FINISHES 15TH IN PRELIMS.
Pearsall and Cotulla both sent athletes to the Clyde Littlefield Texas Relays in Austin over the weekend as the Cowgirls’ Raeann Charo was 15th in the 100m dash prelims while the Mavs’ sprint relay team was 10th in prelims.
The top nine teams in each event advanced to the finals.
“The boys and girls competed well at the Texas Relays,” PHS Head Boys’ Track Coach Julian Hernandez said. “Our mile relay teams hit personal bests against great competition and our varsity boys 400 team placed tenth and ran another sub 43 second race, 42.92.
“We narrowly missed the finals by a tenth of a second but we are very pleased with how we look going into district.”
“Our girls mile relay team ran their best time of the year with a time of 4:33.04 against many great teams across the state,” Pearsall Head Girls’ Track Coach Ricky Medrano said of his athletes at the event.
Pearsall’s 400m relay team of Nathaniel Rodriguez, Curtis Saenz, Leon Martinez, Jaiden Ortiz and Tristan Ellis finished with a time of 42.50. They were third overall in their heat.
Pearsall’s mile relay team of Alvaro Abrego, Gilbert Marquez, Abel Elizondo, Aiden Rodriguez, Tristan Ellis and Jaiden Ortiz were 40th in prelims with a time of 3:38.01.
Pearsall’s Lady Mavs had their sprint and mile relay teams also compete at the event.
The 400m relay squad of Natalie Ortegon, Sarah Brady, Ebony Garza and Anisty Martinez were sixth in their heat and 60th overall in prelims with a time of 55.46.
The girls’ 1,600m relay team of Jezzie Leal, Jenevy Gonzalez, Gezlynn Wolfe and Anisty Martinez were 61st overall with a time of 4:33.04.
Cotulla’s Raeann Charo was fifth in her heat, which was among the fastest at the event. She was 15th overall with a time of 12.38. Randolph’s Taylor Nunez won the event with a blistering time of 11.58.
The Texas Relays were the final action of the season prior to district competition, which begins next week for Pearsall, Dilley and Cotulla.
