Del Real earns gold at Crystal City

Melody Del Real finished first overall to lead her team in cross country action at the Javelinas Invitational on Saturday, August 31 in Crystal City.

Del Real’s finish was a contrast to the Wolves’ efforts at the event, which did not please Cross Country Coach Victor Flores.

“Being our second week of competition and watching the boys run, I was not very happy,” the coach said. “Then here come the girls and watching Melody run; she built up my spirits.

“She had said that this time she was going for the gold and she did. Hopefully this will really get her in the right direction and knowing her capabilities, make her a better runner.

Del Real won the event with a time of 13:38.

Mia Meza was 21st at 15:35, Izbel Hernandez was 23rd at 15:44 and Belle Girtman was 35th at 16:43. Lacking in runners, the Wolves’ competed in the junior varsity division. Esai Lozano was 15th overall while J. Rodriguez and A. Rodriguez were 47th and 49th overall.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL, WEEK ONE

In a tale of two halves, Dilley's second half effort would have been enough to win any game, unfortunately, the team surrendered 16 first half points and could not overcome the deficit in a 16-12 loss to Carrizo Springs in the season opener last Friday at Gosch Field.

“Our offense is beginning to build some momentum and we saw a lot of glimpses of great things to come,” DHS AD and Head Football Coach Lamar Rodriguez said. “The offensive line was led by seniors Anthony Saavedra, Dustin Dominguez and Rene Alvarez, junior Chris Umscheid and sophomore Gabe Tijerina as they commanded the line for Carlos Gonzales, Christian Aranda and Jacent Cantu.

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Pearsall forced overtime in a game they trailed for much of, but ultimately a pair of turnovers proved costly as the Mavericks fell to the San Antonio Burbank Bulldogs 20-14 in double overtime last Thursday in their 2019 debut.

“It was a really hard fought game,” PHS AD and Head Football Coach Edward Bocanegra said. “Unfortunately, we came out on the wrong side of the outcome, but I am extremely pleased how the boys continued to fight throughout the game.”

Pearsall fell behind early after the team's first turnover of the season. The two teams exchanged offensive possessions and a defensive struggle ensued but Burbank pounced on a loose ball at the Maverick 27 to put them in business.

They would score on a Matthew Salazar two-yard run to go up 7-0 late in the first.

Pearsall would respond with a 20-yard scoring strike from quarterback Brady Blackburn to Ethan Waldrum midway through the second.
