The morning was dark with 9 Apaches silhouetted on the bus.  Warm breakfast
burritos and muffins with fruit greeted the Apache Cross Country Athletes.
The Apaches knew this was their last meet in Hays.
The rigorous course and beautiful October sunrise greeted the two teams
from Liberal, Kansas. The 7th grade girls ran first at 10 am with the
raucous shot of the pistol.  Alea Diaz <[email protected]>  PRed
with a time of 10:23 coming in 27th place.  Jessica Pando turned in a time
of 9:07 and placed 24th.  Yvanna Rivera <[email protected]>  led
the pack with a time of 8:35 and placed 22nd.  These lady Apaches have
constantly improved and have kept the team’s spirits up.
The 7th grade Apache braves were up next.  Again the starter’s pistol
belched fire and the teams were off running.  Marcos Rivas placed 36th and
turned a time of 7:41.  Marcos was 11 seconds shy of another PR.
Cain Ortiz <[email protected]>  has continued to improve at every
meet this season and the MSWAC XC was no exception.  Cain Ortiz
<[email protected]>  placed 32nd and turned a PR of 7:15 on the
mile course.
The 8th grade lady Apaches were represented again by Gennesis Leyva.

The 8th grade Apache braves gave it their all in typical fashion.  Joshua
Talley <[email protected]>  and Zahir Ortiz Acosta
<[email protected]>  ran together last year and have continued
to represent Seymour Rogers Middle School this year.
Joshua Talley <[email protected]>  placed 29th and turned in a
time of 17:41.  Zahir Ortiz placed a respectable 12th spot with a time of
As the sun sets on another SRMS cross country season, Coach Lobmeyer and
Coach Riggs would like to thank the staff, the parents, and especially the
athletes for another year of making students into better runners.  It’s a
great day to be an Apache!
