For the sixth consecutive year, the SHS Varsity Girls Cross Country team won the Regional meet at Mae Simmons Park in Lubbock. The October 28th meet was a monumental success!

Followed by that Alyzah McGlasson crossed the line in 8th with a time of 12:32. Next, Gabby Peralta placed 10th with a time of 12:34.

This year Ashlyn Peralta and Alyzah McGlasson are seniors. It is the 4th year in a row going to State. Ashlyn says if this as she begins to prepare for her final Cross Country meet she believes, “Risk something or forever sit with your dreams.” Alyzah commented as she wraps up her last run for the year, “It always seems impossible until it's done.” Kadince Graza adds this quote for her years of running, and for other future runners “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop.”
Best of luck, ladies as you run at Round Rock one last time on November 9th. “Bring the Juice” and bring home a trophy!
