Magnolia West Cross Country had an outstanding showing at the District 20-5A meet today. Both Varsity teams qualified for Regionals with the Boys winning 1st place and the Girls coming in 2nd.
Not only did the Varsity teams do well, but the Sub-Varsity teams had great performances also.
The JV Boys won first place as a team. Sergio Sosa came in 1st place overall and Junior Trejo finished 3rd. Next were Christian Richert (5th), Cameron Conaway (8th), and David Ramos (9th). That put our first 5 runners all in the top 10. To round out the team we had Alex Bezilla in 20th, David Lopez in 28th, and Ethan Goodwin in 49th. The boys finished the season the way we wanted to with a District Championship.
Desiree Medrano placed 13th overall in the Girls JV Division and received a medal.
The Freshmen Boys won first place as a team as well. All five runners were in the top 15 and received medals. Fredy Sillero came in (4th), Carmelo Garcia (6th), Bryan Ivey (8th), Jacob Brooks (11th), and Emory Smith (12th). The boys really came out to compete and they ended the season the right way.
