PEARSALL TRACK & FIELD
Pearsall’s track and field squads were shorthanded in action at the Ro-Hawk Invitational Relays at Universal City Randolph on Thursday, March 30 as members of the boys’ and girls’ relay teams were in action at the Texas Relays in Austin the same day.
The event also did not feature field events, an area in which both the Mavs and Lady Mavs excel. Pearsall Boys Head Track Coach Julian Hernandez, however, saw the opportunity as a chance for his athletes to continue to improve as district competition approaches.
“Our other athletes competed at Randolph last week,” Hernandez said. “They did a great job adjusting to the elements and competing against quality competition. They continue to improve and are ready to get to district.”
Compiling relay teams from available athletes, Pearsall was still able to place third in the 800m relay and eighth in the sprint relay.
Varsity boys’ results are as follows: 100m dash, 16th, Ponceano Cavazos, 12.52; 3,200m run, 15th, Romeo Vega, 10:59.74; 110m hurdles, seventh, Jovonnie Robledo, 18.71; 400m relay, eighth, Eduardo Martinez, Elijah Luna, Tristan Ellis, Jovonnie Robledo, 47.81; 800m relay, third, Eduardo Martinez, Tristan Ellis, Jovonnie Robledo, Ponceano Cavazos, 1:37.51.

“The girls competed hard at Randolph against great competition resulting in many personal bests throughout the girls team,” Pearsall Head Girls’ Coach Ricky Medrano said. “With two weeks left to prepare for our district meet, the young girls squad have made tremendous progress throughout the season and look to finish strong as we focus on sharpening our running mechanics, staying healthy and fresh to be well prepared for district.”
