All four of these guys are El Paso area leaders as well as UIL state meet medalists. For the past four years, things kicked off with this very meet and each one of them ended with a team state championship for the area.

Last year, ended with several team and individual state meet qualifications, another team state championship, the first Nike Cross Nationals team qualification and another individual qualification.

Cheers to another outstanding El Paso cross country season and again, it all begins tomorrow at Album Park.
