Wildcat Cross-Country travels to Borger, Texas
by Darla Bocock
The Wildcat Cross Country team traveled to Borger, Texas, on Saturday.
It was a good day to run, and the BC runners had a good day as a result.
The junior high boys and girls ran together and were the first race of the day.
The junior high teams weren't split into divisions, so our team raced against Texas teams from Borger, Perryton and Amarillo. They represented Boise City very well.
In only his second race, Victor Saucedo ran extremely well, finishing seventh, with a time of 12:40.
Justin Neatherlin was next and he improved his two-mile time from last year by 4:40 coming in 47th with a time of 15:43.
In just their first run the young junior high Lady Cats raced well finishing 40th and 45th with Tiffany Shutte leading with a time of 16:28.17. Eunice Hernandez was close behind with a time of 16:48.19.
At the high school level, the Lady Cats were represented by Chandler Daffern in her second two-mile race finishing 49th with a time of 16:17. Chandler improved her time from last weekend by 1:38.
Denisse Hernandez placed 52nd with a time of 16:27. Denisse improved her time by 1:20.
The Wildcats finished the day with a run of 3.1 miles.
Uriel Rodriguez placing 35th with a time of 22:04; a time that was 2:27 faster than last year.
Destry Elms was next, finishing 41st with a time of 23:46, and an improvement of 3:10.
Brock Oyler, in his very first 5K gave a good performance finishing 48th with a time of 25:35.
Overall we had a good day, and I was pleased with everyone's efforts.
