Despite the heavy rains and lots of mud the day before on Friday, Fredericksburg High School cross country teams competed on a firm course in bright, sunny weather at the UTSA Ricardo Romo Classic on Saturday, Sept. 21 in San Antonio.
The Fredericksburg boys placed sixth out of 22 teams while the girls placed eighth out of 23 teams.
They also had four top-25 finishes: Clarissa Sanchez in 12th place, Nick Martinez in 21st place, Serena Rivera in 22nd place and Juan Hernandez in 24th place.
FHS’ next cross country race will be close to home on Saturday, Sept. 28, at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park.
“An injury to one of our boys runners knocked the boys team back about two team spots, but we were still able to manage our goal of making it into the top six,” said head coach Dan Aldrich.
