Jordan Chavez and Justin Leonard are this month's True Performers.
Chavez enjoyed a highly decorated cross country and track career at Southlake Carroll HS. The three-time team captain made a significant impact- during his final cross country campaign, Chavez was named Texas All-State, Academic All-State, Nike Cross Nationals Team Runner-Up and received the Nike Cross Nationals Anchor Award for the top fifth man in the nation. Chavez is currently at University of Richmond where he continues his running career and also on the USA Mountain Running Team continuing to be at the top of his game.
A CISD teacher since 2004, Coach Justin Leonard has been strongly involved in the CISD cross country program. After becoming Head Coach for the High School cross country team in 2008, Coach Leonard has led the boys and girls to back-to-back state championships and the CISD cross country program was named the top program in the nation at Nike Nationals for 2011 and 2012. He continues to teach, and volunteers as the middle school coach, leading a team of over 150 student athletes. Coach Justin is married to Nikki and has three children, Caitlyn, Caden, and Corbin. This year coach Leonard had the most collegiate signees at Carroll.
