August 27, 2013By Lindsay Davis of Splendora High School
The Splendora Cross-Country teams have made huge improvements and it all showed this past weekend as they ran in the “Run the Ridge” at Cypress High School. Running against only 4A and 5A the LadyCats and Wildcats proved they can compete at that level!
Out of 10 teams, Splendora finished 5th. Leading the LadyCats was Ruby Martinez with a time of 14:33 as her teammate Kim Ramos followed with a time of 14:37. Ana Zepeda turned in a time of 15:11, Jennifer Ramos, Abby Bagley, and Camille Poffinbarger all ran exceptionally well.
The LadyCats JV team consisting of Sandra Castillo, JoLynn Thompson, Elizabeth Alston, Denise Villalobos, Jeannelle Romero, Salma Young, Ivy Bagley, Kiara McDonald, and Marleen Martinez, finished 9th out of 16 teams.
The Wildcats did not have a full team due to injuries. However, Juan Ruiz ran a 12:23 (2 mile course). Brandon Duke, Jeremiah Johnson, and Drew King finished extremely well for their first meet this season.
The Junior Varsity Wildcat, Jose Sanchez, ran hard and competed excellent for his first high school cross country meet.
The LadyCats and Wildcats will travel to Barbers Hill on September 14.
