Cross counry teams battle rain, mud at Robstown event
Port Aransas High School's Lady Marlins are making waves in cross country competition, while the two members of the Marlin cross country team continue to improve with each meet.
The Lady Marlins finished first in the small school varsity division and second as a team to Tuloso-Midway's junior varsity at the Robstown meet held Saturday, Sept. 8.
"The girls ran real well and posted their best times of the year so far," said Coach Steve Reaves.
"The kids are competing real well and improving week to week. We are currently ranked seventh in state by the cross county coaches association," Reaves added.
By the time the girls took to the course, conditions had improved over the early morning muddy conditions experienced by the boys.
The course for the boys is longer than the girls', "so our times were off, but they still competed extremely well. Our goal is to be ready by district in October," Reaves said.
