Lexington Cross Country

by Mike Organ

The Lexington Cross Country team has been just as busy as the volleyball and football teams. Lexington hosted one of the largest small school cross country meets in the state last weekend. There were at least 12 different schools participating and six divisions. Edinburg North traveled the furthest to run in the rain. The meet was held in a continuous drizzle that sometimes increased to a steady rain.

Coach Josh Munson called the meet a memorable success. He would like to thank all the volunteers who helped out on the race course in the less than perfect conditions.

Luis Serrano of Edinburg won the varsity boys division, followed by Elliot Petterson of St. Michael's of Austin. Lexington's top finisher was Jeffery Pena in 12th place. Other Lexington runners and their finishes were: Jason Armstrong 23rd, Zane Kleinschmidt 25th, Aaron Berry 26th, Landon Walch 32nd , Phillip Bindbergh 33rd , Vaugh Kassner 60th, Gregory Willrich 61st, and John Turner 78th .

Jenyse Vasquez of Edinburg won the varsity girls division followed by Martha Bustamante of Cameron.

Lauren Johnston was Lexington's top placer in 29th. Other Lady Eagle runners and places were: Ashton Johnston 34th, Hillary Salazar 35th, Rachel Clark 46th, Lucero Martinez 47th, Courtney Clifford 53rd, Raquel Hernandez 59th, and Deja Griffin 75th.

In the JV Boys division John Sendejo of Edinburg placed first, with Tanner Nelson of Georgetown second. In the JV Girls division, Alex Poulis of Rouse won with three Edinburg North runners in hot pursuit.

In the Middle School division, Joe Pena of Cameron won with Joshua Crockett of the Austin Royals second.

Lexington's London Jacob was 36th, Corey Strain 55th, Dustin Albreight 74th, and Jason Mann 76th for the boys. In the girls' division, Callum McBeath of Wimberley placed first with teammate Sky Hibler second. Reagan Johnston of Lexington was third and Shelby Abby was 45th.
