Seymour Rogers Cross Country

From coach Lopmeyer

SRMS XC Hays  9/12/23

The second cross country meet was in the books with fantastic weather at Hays for Seymour Rogers Middle School. With 20 girls and 8 boys who came prepared to compete and knew what to expect.  First, the 7th lady Apache set the tempo of the course with our team of seven competitors.  The 7th lady Apaches took 6th as a team with Valeria Ontiveros leading her team and placing second. The hills in Hays did not slow Valeria Ontiveros down much as she finished her race with a time of 6:39. Nayhara Morillo was the first Apache to earn a personal record with a 8:00 and was followed by Saniyah Tucker who cut her time down by a minute to finish with 9:06. Next came Nayeli Andrade, Magali Romo, and Jazmin Portillo who shortened her time by three minutes. Brianna Mendoza completed her first race and is ready to beat her time on Saturday.

Our four 7th grade Apaches stepped up and all earned personal records. Chance Macy liked his 5th place medal and earned a second one for the season with a time of 6:12. Jaxon Schwindt was not too far behind with a time of 6:57 followed by Leo Castillo with a time of 7:18. Callen Bridenstine came in at 9:50.

Not to be outdone, every 8th lady Apaches earned a personal record, some by several minutes. Yatzira Nunez ran her two miles ten seconds faster for a time of 15:34. Impressing coaches was Valeria Ibarra who took off an entire six minutes for a time of 16:56, even with a side stitch. Zureidy Navarro also took off ten seconds for a time of 17:56. Danna Ortega, Yazmin Enriquez, Jaydelyn Ryan, Bella Patel all ran close together and took off two or three minutes from their previous times. Ayari Ramirez ran in the middle of those girls for her first race. Laura Tiquiram, Yaritza Rosas, Zaira Mendoza, Mercedes Contreras and Yaretzi Rosas ran as a second pack of Apaches and also took off two to three minutes each for personal records. These girls run as a team and will continue to improve as a team.

The 8th boy Apaches only have four runners and all were able to perform today. Juan Ledesma said he would do his best and finished his first race in 15:18. Alexis Arcos, Elian Escobar, and Jamari Tucker followed the trend and all three shortened their time for personal records. Alexis took off three minutes, Elian removed forty-five seconds, and Jamari ran to take off four minutes.

It was a great day to be an Apache and we are excited for the next several meets.
