AmericasinMudd
The Americas boys have competed in the worst of conditions this season. The 2018 version is looking to become the first Americas team to advance to the state championship.

Americas cross country coach Kenny Lucero is in a situation many coaches would love to be in.

The Trailblzers, who will compete in the Region 1-6A Championship on Monday, do not have a number one runner.

Instead, they have four runners capable of taking over a race.

“They are interchangeable parts,” Lucero said. “And that’s going to be a huge advantage at regionals. We see it every meet. Tyler (Rodriquez) was our No. 1, Jared Laverty, only a freshman, was our No.2 guy and Jacob (Ye) was our No. 3 guy so you saw those interchangeable parts work again at district.”

Americas has been steady all season, competing in Albuquerque, Lubbock and Round Rock.

“As we move on to regionals and state, if they all feel good on the same day, we could be very dangerous,” Lucero said of the boy’s chances of advancing to state.

JazmnChacon
Socorro junior Jazime Chacon finished fifth at the District 1-6A Championship, earning her a trip to the Regional Meet.

The Americas girls, the Coronado boys and girls and the Franklin boys and girls teams will also compete for a spot to the state meet as well as Jazmin Chacon and Mario Luna from Socorro and Matthew Lindesy from Montwood.

Last year, Franklin sophomore Eva Jess and Coronado seniors Liam Walsh and Jenelle Jaeger-Daraksy qualified out of Class 6A.

MatthewLindey
Montwood senior Matthew Lindsey is one of two runners not on a qualifying team to advance to regionals. Socorro’s Mario Luna is the other.

“Liam did great last year at regionals and made it to state; I was so proud of him,” said Nick Gonzalez, the District 1-6A champion from Coronado. “Being able to train with our teammates is great. It’s always been important to be able to train with Liam and Alan. We push each other at every workout and during the race. I am very thankful that I have them with me.”

Jess ran a 17:17.03 regional last year, good for fifth place.

“We are doing so great this year,” she said of her team. “We’ve been ranked No. 1 in the city five weeks in a row and ranked second one week so we’re doing really well. We’re all so happy to win district and to be able to go to regionals, that was our goal this year.”

KaynQuinones
Eastwood senior Kayn Quinones said the out-of-team meets will help the Troopers in the next two races. Eastwood looks to return to the State Cross Country Meet, this time in Class 5A.

Senior Kayn Quinones and his Eastwood Troopers have experienced quite a few quality national and regional meets in the past two years.

Last fall, the Eastwood boys won the Region 1-6A Championship and finished third at the UIL State Cross Country Meet. They also placed third at the Nike South qualifying meet.

This year, the Troopers have competed at the Woodbridge Cross Country Classic in Irvine, Calif. and the pre-Nike Southwest Desert Twilight Classic in Casa Grande, Ariz. – an event which they won.

“Racing in those meets has made a huge difference for us,” Quinones said. “After Woodbridge, I don’t think anything could intimidate us; that start was just blazing. After that race, we knew we wouldn’t see anything like that the rest of the season and we would be fine continuing through.”

Because of UIL realignment, the Troopers are now competing for the Class 5A state championship.

“We need to continue the same thing we’ve been doing all season,” Quinones said of how the team is preparing for regionals. “We’re not going to change anything, we’re treating it just like another race.”

Quinones led the Troopers to its eighth district championship in row, finishing third behind the Hanks junior duo of Michael Abeyta and Rodger Rivera.

The Region 1-5A Championship will include six teams and 10 athletes from District 1-5A and 2-5A.

Eastwood’s boys and girls qualified as well as both boys and girls from Burges, Eastlake and Jefferson, Chapin and Hanks boys and the Canutillo and Horizon girls.

DavidGonzalezBurges
Burges sophomore David Gonzalez is going to need to a big Region 1-5A Championship performance if the Mustangs hope to advance to the state meet for the second row in a row.

The Burges boys are also looking to qualify to state for the second straight year.

Also qualifying as individuals are: Chauncey Wilkes and Lloyd Frilot, Andress; Adrian Morales, Irvin; Dylan Espinoza, Bowie; Mora Montes, Austin; Skyler Goodman, Chapin; Marisol Hernandez, El Paso; Caryn Hart, Andress; Angelina Lujan, Parkland and Jaqueline Spencer, Hanks.

Eastwood freshman Lauren Walls, came away with a surprise District 2-5A championship last Friday.

“We’ve had a really good season so far,” she said. “All the girls have improved with every race. It’s been an amazing experience to see us grow like we have.”

She is confident the Troopers will do well in Lubbock.

“We’re going to do great at regionals because we all have each other,” she said. “Each one of us is going to do her part and run the best we can and help each other. In summer track, I used focus on myself, now I realize there is something bigger and that it’s all about my team.”

The Jefferson girl’s have been building up for this moment all season.

“Hopefully, if everything goes well, we are hoping to make it to state,” said Alfredo Trejo, Jefferson’s coach. “We don’t care what place we finish at regionals, just as long as we get to state, that’s the one that counts.”

Girls1-5APackdistrict
The Eastwood, Jefferson, Eastlake, Canutillo, Horizon and Burges girls will compete for one of the top four spots at the Region 1-5A meet in Lubbock.

Andress senior Chauncey Wilkes won the individual title in District 1-5A.

He finished 28th in 15:59.99 at last year’s regional.

“I’m going to have to make a big jump with my time,” he said. “I know Michael (Abeyta) is running a 15:50 so If I want to be that guy who makes it to state I have to shave off another 40 seconds and be with him.”

Abeyta, the three-time District 2-5A champion, was second at last year’s regional 4 seconds behind Aledo’s Graydon Morris.

“I feel really confident about regionals,” he said “Our team has worked really hard, Rodger has worked hard, I’ve worked really hard, we all deserve to be going.”

Rivera said he feels confident about advancing to state.

“I’ve been working for this all summer, every day, trying to stay close to Michael,” he said. “My plan is to run with Michael and he’s going to take me all the way to state.”

FelipeRochaClint
Clint senior Felipe Rocha will compete for a second trip to state after his 10 place finish at the District 1-4A meet where he outlasted San Elizario senior Martin Pargas.

The similarities between the San Elizario and Tornillo boys cross country teams are striking.

Each team just celebrated its fifth district championship.

Every year San Eli’s Cesar Morales and Tornillo’s Jesse Garcia  do more with less than any other coaches in the city.

On Monday morning, both will be going for their fifth regional championship in a row – San Elizario in Class 4A and Tornillo in Class 3A at Mae Simmons Park in Lubbock.

“They have to want it, they have to want every inch, every step and they have to fight for it,” Garcia said about his Coyotes. “We will come out on top if we believe in one another and push one another and have that fight in them throughout the race.”

At last year’s regional meet, Tornillo finished 1-2-3-15 and 25.

HeribertoAmaya
Tornillo’s Heriberto Amaya was fifth at last week’s District 3-3A Championship. He is looking to help his team to it’s fifth regional championship in a row.

Eddie Carrillo, who just won the District 3-3A championship, was third and Ofir Ortega, who was the work house No. 1 guy for Tornillo, was 15th.

“I ran them heavy last week, this week we are tapering off a little bit so they can get their legs back and be ready for the big fight,” Garcia said. ‘It’s going to be very close and we’re going to need everything they’ve got.”

They will be challenged by district rival Crane which was just three points behind them at district.

“When we get back, we’ll make a few adjustments again and take what we’ve been wanting for a long time which is a state title,” Garcia said.

Winning a state title is old hat for San Elizario.

If they qualify on Monday, which is highly likely, the Eagles will be going after their fifth straight Class 4A state championship.

The return of junior Rene Arambula could not have come at a better time for San Elizario.

ReneA
San Elizario junior Rene Arambula eventually caught this Clint runner to take third at the District 1-4A Championship. Arambula made his return four weeks ago after breaking his right ankle.

Arambula, who was second at last year’s regional, was thought to be lost for the season after he broke his right ankle in an ATV accident in the summer.

“It’s a great feeling being back; I missed running a lot,” he said after finishing third at the district meet. “It was tough being out. I was frustrated, having (emotional) breakdowns, trying to keep calm and give my body a rest.”

Arambula was in a cast for two months. He just started walking six weeks ago and ran his first race – at the JV level – four weeks ago.

“When the doctor told me I could run again, I was excited and happy but I knew I wouldn’t be immediately back to normal,” he said. “It took me about two weeks to get back to a steady pace.”

His first varsity race was two weeks at the Horizon Golf Course.

“I was really anxious to get back but it wasn’t about me, I wanted to get back for my team,” he said. “I knew I had failed them and I wanted to get back to them as quickly as possible.”

Morales is happy Arambula is back.

“It has been an incredible recovery for Rene,” he said. “As soon as he got the clearance from the doctor, that same day, he started running. We spoke about being smart about it and not just going out and running 10 miles right away.”

Morales was impressed by how patient Arambula has been.

“He’s a hard working kid,” Morales said. “I knew he was going to come back. I saw a big improvement from his JV race to his Horizon race not only in competition but a big improvement on a daily basis at practice. I had to put him varsity.”

Arambula is no longer going to take running for granted.

“As soon as it happened, I sent a text message to my coach and my teammates telling them that more than likely I was out for the season,” he said. “It would be a long shot if I was going to be back. But now that I’m back, I’m going to work hard and push myself but more importantly, try to push my team.”

Mt.View-ClingGirls
Clint junior Brisa Aguilar out kicked Mt. View freshman Madeline Estrada at the District 1-4A meet last week. Both runners will compete in Monday’s Region 1-4A Championship in Lubbock.

The San Elizario girls also qualified for regionals along with the Fabens boys, the Clint girls and Mt. View’s boys and girls team.

Clint senior Felipe Rocha, finished in the top 10 at district and qualified as an individual.

Mt. View sophomore Joshua Gonzalez was 14th at regionals and advanced to state, as did San Elizario junior Yajary Quiroz and sophomore America Morales.
