Southlake Carroll Cross Country, a nationally recognized championship team, is off to a winning start once again. The Dragons took top honors at the 32nd Greenhill Six Mile Relay on Saturday. The relay has been a mainstay on the Texas high school Cross Country schedule for years and kicks off the Cross Country season for many local and regional teams.
The Carroll Boys Elite Varsity A team set a new course record by .25 seconds and took first place with Juan Arcila, Nicholas Fernandes, Enzo Mortimer and Connor Rutledge with a relay time of 29.03.
The Carroll Girls Elite Varsity A team, the returning champion, took first place again with Cate Tracht, Ali White, Ari Lopez and Gillian Mortimer running the relay in 34.36. Carroll’s Varsity Girls Elite B team took fourth place with Angela Riera, Christina Canal, Lauren Esparza and Sarah McCabe clocking a time of 36:05.
Southlake Carroll Cross Country had 35 teams participate in the Greenhill Six Mile Cross Country Relay.
“Our teams performed well today in their first meet of the season,” said Justin Leonard, head coach. “The Greenhill Relay is a great ‘rust buster’ for our kids. We’re really proud of all of our teams, but the thing that was evident to us was the level of competitiveness that each runner brought. They were definitely excited to race different opponents other than their teammates.”
Next week, the Carroll Cross Country team travels to Denton for the Marcus I Invitational.
