Vista Ridge take both individual and team titles Aug 29, 2008

Some of the best central texas runners competed today at the AISD Zilker Invitational. Cedar Park Vista Ridge took home both team titles and individual titles. Amanda Russell (pictured) ran a strong early season effort in hot and humid conditions. She won easily in a cross country personal best 11:19. The Vista Ridge girls average 12:04 for their top 5 runners and they ran without Ashley Isham.  Ashly Benes(Austin Bowie) senior ran well for her first race of the year placing second. The Sr had a great year on the track last season running 2:17. Zachery Ornelas dominated the race from the beginning opening up a sizeable gap in the first 800. He cruised to an impressive 15:09 for 3 miles. Second place was a real battle between Mark Pinales, Collin Smith, and John McNamara. Pinales pushed late for a 15:58. Collin Smith (Austin High Sr) had a brutal kick to close the gap late but ran out of real estate as he crossed the line in 16:00. St Andrews runner John McNamara held on for fourth in 16:04. Pinales had a really good track season last year as a freshman running 9:29. AISD Zilker Invitational Photo Album Meet Page with Results
