We get things started with the District 19-4A meet where it was a mad dash to the finish line for the anchor legs. The top three qualifiers knew they were clearly going to advance, but they were battling for their district.
The 23-6A district has been chronicled all week for it's speed. The boys 4x100 relay was a district power battler for the top quartet. George Ranch and Pearland Dawson battled throughout the race with George Ranch having the lead going into the last stretch. And he winner is.....you gotta watch!
Here is a bit of advice....watch out for Conroe in the girls 4x100. They took the reigns in their district meet from the start. They got a competitive push from The Woodlands and Montogomery, but you've gotta watch Conroe girls to get a feel of how dangerous they are.
We are bringing you the need for speed with the 4x100 relay from the 17-6A district finals. The Cypress schools all had ran a close race down to the wire. See how exciting the rematch will be at the Area meet.
Another classic district 19-4A battle that saw the winner come from the inside to take things. the wind was again a very big factor and almost allowed second and third place to come back in for the win.
So, when you think of Cy-Springs being one of the top teams in the state, you'd expect them to dominate their district meet, right? Well, not so fast! they got a serious push in the 4x200 relay. They got possibly the third handoff on the final exchange. They stayed calm and didn't panic, but expect them to step it up at Area as they attempt to qualify all relays to Regionals. Here is some advice though, don't sleep on Cy-Woods and Jersey Village!
Everyone knows El Paso Eastwood for their distance program, but they can sprint too. The girls took the district 1-6A 4x100 title from start to finish.
It's the Eastwood girls sprinters once again. This time, they won in a little different fashion. They led from start to finish in the 4x100, but this time they had to come from behind....way behind. The anchor leg brought the team from a non qualifying position all of the way to the lead and eventual win.
The Alief Elsik girls have been on fire since day one of the season. You can tell they definitely want to get back to the state meet. They got out fast and early, it's a good thing because the George Ranch anchor leg does not play around!
