The Southlake Carroll Cross Country teams traveled in different directions the weekend of Oct. 10, and competed at the 37th Annual Clovis Invitational in Fresno, CA and at the Flyin’ Hawks Invitational in Hurst, TX. The Elite boys and girls teams faced tough completion and a course filled with hills and sand in California, coming away with some strong performances. The Varsity and JV teams ran closer to home in Hurst, TX.

Head Coach Justin Leonard commented, “We are proud of the way our teams competed in the final regular season meet this weekend. We are now headed into the championship part of our season and we can’t wait to display all of the hard work our kids have put in over the past year. Our district meet is Monday, October 19th and we will look to run our best when it matters the most.”

The Elite Dragon girls took an impressive 3rd place in California and were led by senior Allison Esparza who captured 23rd place with time of 18:27 on this very tough 5k course.  Tig Archer was close behind with a 25th place finish (18:31), Gillian Mortimer came in next in 33rd place (18:43), Sarah Odneal  was in 36th place (18:49) and Kayli Jones rounded out the scoring positions with 38th place (18:50). Catherine Tracht (19:00), Ali White (19:20) and Ari Lopez (19:36) complete the Elite 8 runners for the Dragon girls. 

The Varsity Dragon girls ran with determination and were led by Olivia Arriaza in 5th place, Angie Riera coming in 45th, Sarah McCabe in 59th, Lauren Esparza in 60th and Gabrielle Bigalke in 85th place.

The Elite Dragons boys came away with an 11th place finish and were led by junior Reed Brown who took 13th place (15:32).  Michael Simcho finished next in 40th place (16:04), Michael Waugh came in 68th (16:17), Nic Fernandes placed 87th (16:32) and Juan Arcila took 109th (16:45) to finish out the top 5.  Also competing was Timou Toure with a 17:15 finish.

The Dragon Varsity Boys battled the tough course and had Connor Rutledge come in 62nd place, followed by Chase Haddock in 78th, David Archer in 110th, Sam Kemps in 151st and Jackson Felkins in 162nd place.

The Dragons had Varsity and JV teams competing at the Flyin’ Hawks Invite.  The Varsity boys team taking 6th place led by Enzo Mortimer (32nd) and the Varsity girls team taking 7th place led by Isabelle Dominguez (10th). 

The JV’s teams had a strong showing with a 2nd place finish for the girls and a 4th place for the boys.  Drew Bliss led the JV boys team with a 8th place finish and Whitney Woods led the JV girls with a 3rd place finish.
