Ulysses Cross Country Meet.

September 21, 2021

It’s a great day to be an Apache!

What a wonderful day for a run, not too cold, not too hot, but with the
gently cooling breeze runners appreciate. Seymour Rogers Cross country team
came home from the Ulysses meet with four of those prized medals.

Boys and girls ran together on this two mile course and our 7th graders
filled the starting box. Jose Escobar set his two mile personal best with a
time of 15:34 and earned the first medal of the day in 10th place. Ruben
Martinez was right behind and earned the 12th place medal with his own
personal best time of 15:42. At 17:06 Cain crossed that finish line
finishing his third race in 26th place. Benjamyn Brockett and Marco Rivas
stuck close together throughout the race to claim 37th and 38th place for
their teams with their respective times of 19:15 and 19:31. Ayden Beyna
also made his two mile debut coming in at 20:19. While not everyone
recurved their own medal, they all stuck it out to earn 4th place for their

Focusing on her first two mile race, Ashley Vizcarra set her personal best
with. Time of 19:34. To her delight this was just fast enough to earn
herself a medal for 14th place. Yvanna Rivera nabbed 21st place with a time
of 21:41. Never one to quit Jessica Pando crossed that finish line at
26:25. Wrapping up the team was Alea Diaz who gave what she could for her
first two mile time of 27:21.

Gennises Leyva was again our only 8th grade girl runner as Blanca Nieves
could only cheer her on due to injury. Even so that does not stop Gennises
from competing and running a time of 18:57.

Running at the same time as the girls, our two 8th grade boys did their
thing. Zahir Ortiz tried a new knee wrap that helped bring him to 14th
place with a time of 14:48. This was fast enough to claim the final Apache
medal. Bringing the Apache team in was Joshua Talley who finished his race
in 19:23.

We are proud of our runners, they never quit on or off the course and can
often be heard cheering on all other runners. They have what it takes and
are willing to give their best every race.
