Middle School Results

From Coach Lobmeyer – 

The Seymour Rogers Middle School Cross Country team traveled to Buffalo Dunes in Garden City for their third meet of the season. This was another hilly course for our athletes to fight their way over to the finish line.

Alexa Macias represented the 7th grade girls with her determination to finish despite fighting ankle pain.

Joshua Talley continues to show his strong finish as he works toward another PR. In the same race Zahir pushed himself harder and sprinted past competition to earn 5th place and gain his second medal of the season. Along with his medal, Zahir ran a new PR with a time of 6:57, taking 18 seconds off his previous time.

Emma Maltbie joined Ariana Cerda to represent the 8th grade girls. Emma struggled through ankle pain to finish the 2 mile race with a time of 17:40 and just seconds in front of competition.

Ariana Cerda ran a great race and included a sprint at the end with a goal in mind. She earned herself a second medal, coming in 10th place with a time of 16:51.

Last, but definitely not least, the 8th grade boys were led again by Enrique Morales with a time of 14:33 for 13th place. Sadly this did not beat his PR from last week (14:25), or a medal, but he is already looking forward to Dodge City to redeem himself on both accounts. He was followed closely by Arnold Sanchez with a time of 15:02, his fastest race of the season. Alex Koerner was seen sprinting around another competitor to cross the finish line less than a second faster with a time of 17:23. Erik Valenzuela finished off the team just a few places later with his own time of 17:44.

The team worked together to cheer each other on and to help one another at the finish line.

8th grade A & B Coach Knott –

7A team Coach Kelley
Last night the Lady Apaches ventured across the border to Oklahoma. They faced off against Guymon and battled both sets to try and take the match but fell just a little bit short. The first set Guymon and Seymour Rogers battled back and forth with the lead but Guymon would come out on top taking the first set 25-22. The Lady Apaches would struggle keeping up with Guymon at the beginning of the second set and would fall 25-15. Guymon took the match 2-0.
7th B team Coach Taylor
We are doing well with our chemistry and love playing the game together! We lost 15-25, and 9-25. Every one of us is making our serves over and we are hustling to get the ball. Janissa and Blanca play the net really well, staying there for the balls the drop right off the net. Karyme and Jovanna keep a constant smile that helps motivate our team, and each girl appreciates their enthusiasm.
