Ram girls favored to repeat as champs, while up-and-coming boys on the cusp Awty's girls finished second in the Class 4A/5A division and the boys claimed the 1-3A title at the Cowboy Jamboree, one of the country's largest and oldest meets, last weekend at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Okla. After ranking second to St. Agnes at the Incarnate Word Academy Invitational to open the season, Awty's girls won the Lutheran South, San Jacinto Battleground, Brazos and Dayton meets. In addition to repeating as state champions, Sload hopes one of his runners - most likely Prasad or Grant - can grab individual goal. The Rams placed only seventh at state in 2012 and few considered Awty a legitimate contender. Aside from their victory at the Cowboy Jamboree, the Rams won at Brazos, took second at Lutheran South, Battleground and Dayton and placed third at IWA. According to Sload, one of the reasons why Awty's boys are a threat is the return of junior Ben Matthews. [...] an overabundance of talent is a nice problem for Sload, who is preparing both groups for the Nike South Invitational on Saturday, Oct. 5, at Bear Branch Park in The Woodlands.
