It’s been a long break without high school sports, but sports are back! The first team back in action is the Mustangs Cross Country team. The first meet for the Mustangs was Saturday, Sept. 12, at Caldwell Community Park in Princeton.

“It felt great to finally get back out there,” junior Jorge Acosta said. ”I really missed the competition and missed running with my team.”

Both the girls and boys varsity teams  finished in fifth place  out of eight teams competing Saturday.  Junior Lucas Carter finished 15th overall and Acosta placed 22nd.

“I really think we can improve off of this meet,” Carter said. ”It felt great to lead the team Saturday. I can’t wait to try and improve my time and hopefully help us move higher than fifth.”

For the girls varsity team sophomore Anna Eischen placed fifth and junior Madison Ramirez finished 15th.

The Mustangs next meet is this Saturday in Crandall.

“After a week of practice since our meet, I can’t wait to get back out there and hopefully win it,” junior Courtney Rawlings said. ”It’s been a while since we’ve been able to be a team, and it’s great to be back out there. Hopefully we can do even better than last week.”
