For the first time since 2011, the Fredericksburg High School varsity boys’ cross country team advanced to the Cross Country State Championships.
The Billies punched their ticket to the state meet after finishing in second place at the Region IV-4A Meet in San Antonio on Saturday.
“The boys’ team was determined to run together at the meet,” head coach Dan Aldrich said.
The boys will run in the state meet at 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 8 at Old Settlers Park in Round Rock.
The Billies’ efforts to run as a group paid off, and the team earned its best team average time of the season.
Fredericksburg finished behind Boerne, and the Billies edged out Bandera by one point. All three teams belong to the same district.
