After taking 3rd and 4th place respectively at TAPPS District 5A Cross Country Championships last week, The Village Boys and Girls Cross Country teams head to Waco Saturday for the TAPPS State Cross Country Championships. The boy’s team, disappointed with their performance last Thursday, looks for revenge against rivals St John’s XXIII and Lutheran South as well as hoping for a top 5 finish. Led by sophomore captain Ben A (3rd at Districts) and senior Alvaro I (5th at Districts), the Village harriers have been improving all season long and are peaking at the right time.
The Village girls team, led by junior Charlotte S (2nd at Districts) and junior captain Fernanda N (13th at Districts) all set personal bests at Districts. The team will need strong performances from sophomores Reshmi P, Nina R, and Melanie D as well as senior Alison C if they are to move up on District rivals Lutheran-South and Second Baptist. Go Vikings!
