Results

 
Today was another great meet hosted by Texas cross country powerhouse The Woodlands. Coach Juris Green and company did a great job on building a very competitive field featuring not only the top teams in Texas but also a powerhouse from Cailifornia in Great Oaks. Paige Hofstad had another stand out day dominating the field in the last mile outlasting a game Destiny Collins (Great Oaks CA). Kelsie Warren (College Station) also had an outstanding day placing a close 3rd in a fast 18:29. The race was tightly contested throughout until the last circuit.

Not to be outdone by the girls, the boys had an exciting race between consensus #1 Austen Dalquist and Jacob Pickle. Austen is undefeated all year and has looked unbeatable this year. Pickle (Southlake) really closed the gap today only losing by 8 seconds. This bolds well for what should be a battle betwen those 2 Frank Lara and Brad Dohner who also ran well today getting a close 3rd. A big shoutout to Connor Meaux who had a breakout race.

The Team race saw an upset with #1 The Woodlands taking second place to cross town rival #5 The Woodlands College Park. I had College Park ranked as high as #2 in my rankings then after last week in Kansas I dropped them to #5. I should have stuck to my gut. This team is good. #7 Keller ran very well beating a slew of great ranked teams including area powerhouses Southlake Carroll, Marcus, Flower Mound and Hebron.
