Eisenhower Cross Country

Today we hosted the MSWAC meet out at Arkalon. The atmosphere was full of
spectators, that brought tons of electricity. All 8 MSWAC teams brought
their top runners to see who was the best of the best! EMS did not
disappoint!

Seventh grade girls kicked off the morning with a hard fought battle. We
knew going in that Hays was going to be tough to beat but the EMS girls
came to fight but fell short of a league championship by just 6 points. Our
girls set PR (Personal Records) which is always the goal of every runner.
Our MSWAC team consisted of 7 hard running girls: Hazel Gandara, Yulianna
Hernandez, Ava Maxwell, Alexxis Najera, Andrea Rivas, Hallie West, and
Ashlynd Winchell. Alexxis had the best race of her season and finished in
8th place! Hallie West also had her PR and the best race of her season and
finished in 2nd place. This team will be a force to reckoned with when they
run next year!

Seventh grade boys have had a great team all season long. They competed in
7 meets this season and won first place in all 7, including the MSWAC
championship today! Daniel Amparan, Anthony Castilleja, Isaiah Jenkins,
Ellian Laguna, Josiah Perez, David Villa, and Gideon Wright were the super
seven that made up EMS’ best of the best, with all 7 running their PR!
Anthony finished in 8th, Gideon in 6th, and Josiah in 3rd. Their future is
looking very bright!

Both our 8th grade teams earned league championships for their second year
in a row! Both the girls and the boys teams would not be denied this
repeat! Our girls’ team was made up of Pamela Bolivar, Ashley Carrillo,
Helena Combs, Jacqueline Hernandez, Joceline Hernandez, Jireh Ramirez, and
Vanessa Rivas. Helena and Jacqueline both earned medals finishing in 6th
and 3rd place respectively. Our 8th grade boys’ team included Oliver
Dominguez, Carson Gilmore, Philip Harp, Logan Miller, Carlos Roman,
Christian Rojas, and Coby Tran. Logan was our lone medalist finishing in
7th place. All of our 8th grade runner proved to be Legacy Athletes, all 14
of them ran their PR today!

This was a season like no other! The EMS XC team swept 3 meets, which is
something I have never seen before this year! The EMX XC coaching staff
would like to thank all the support we received from parents, staff, and
community to help make this season a success!
